Looking for somewhere to fish? Our Waterway Wanderers Scheme means that individual anglers and angling clubs have access to many miles of canal fishing in England and Wales, at very competitive prices.
Most of the fishing rights on the canal network are licensed to angling clubs but some stretches may not be let for various reasons. Our Waterway Wanderers Scheme makes these waters available to individual anglers and angling clubs.
Permits for individual anglers
The new Waterway Wanderers permit is an annual permit that runs for 12 months from the date of issue.
Individual members of the Angling Trust are also entitled to the £10 concessionary rate as long as they provide a photocopy of their membership card.
Season permits for angling clubs
Any bona fida angling club registering in advance with the Waterway Wanderers Administrator may join the Waterway Wanderers club scheme. Registration is free of charge but all clubs registering must hold third party public liability insurance. Registered clubs with 10 or more joining members could purchase season permits at the concessionary rate of £10. All club permits would be bought in blocks of 5 with a minimum purchase of 10. This also entitles the registered club to a certain number of free matches (a £10 booking fee is required but no peg fees) on any fishery within the Waterway Wanderers Scheme as set out in the table below.
|Number of participating members||Number of free matches||Maximum size|
|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 required) and maximum size of free match.
Registered clubs wishing to book additional matches in addition to the free allocation may do so at a rate of £3 per peg plus the booking fee. Note that not all club members will be required to purchase a Waterway Wanderers permit.
Availability of permits you must get your permit in advance.
Match fishing arrangements The arrangements for registered clubs are outlined above. For non registered clubs wanting to book a match the match peg fee will be £5 per peg plus a £10 booking fee with a minimum match size of 10 pegs.
