How to book a match

You can book online by signing in to your account with us, or registering for a new account if you’ve not set one up before. Once signed in, you will see the ‘Match bookings’ section and the option to ‘Book a match at a fishery’.

If you have any problems making your online booking, you can contact us by phone or email.

Booking more than 6 matches

There is a 50% booking fee discount when booking six or more matches at a time. For example, booking 10 matches individually would result in a fee of £60, whereas booking them in one go would result in a discounted fee of £30.

This discount is not yet available online, but if you would like to claim it, please call us to make your booking on 0303 040 4040. We can't apply the discount to existing bookings, so please do make it clear at the time of booking that you would like to take advantage of this.
