Waterway Wanderers Permits for angling clubs

Did you know?

Almost two thirds of households near our waterways are disadvantaged. Support our community projects along canals and rivers.

Any bona fida angling club registering in advance with our Fisheries team can join our Waterway Wanderers scheme as one group. Here's how...

  • Registration is free but clubs must hold third party public liability insurance
  • Registered clubs with 10 or more joining members can get season permits at the concessionary rate of £10.00
  • All club permits are bought in blocks of five, with a minimum purchase of 10. This also entitles the registered club to a certain number of free matches (a £10.00 booking fee is needed but no peg fees) on any fishery within the Waterway Wanderers scheme as set out below:
Number of participating members Number of free matches  Maximum size 
 10  2  10 pegs 
 15  3 15 pegs
 20  4 20 pegs
 25  5 25 pegs
 30  6 30 pegs
 35 and upwards  10 100 pegs

* Columns relate to number of participating members, number of matches with no peg fees (only the booking fee is needed) and maximum size of free match.

£3.00 per peg plus the booking fee for extra matches on top of your free allocation.

Note: not all club members need to purchase a Waterway wanderers permit.
