Season Tickets

Season tickets, or syndicate rods as they are sometimes known, are a popular option for taking fishing across the year that represents a considerable saving on day rod rates. But the saving aside this is a great way to get to know a fishery well, enjoying the company of fellow anglers and the river keeper.

The exact format varies from fishery to fishery, but in broad terms you will pick an allocation of fishing days that are evenly spread across the season, generally April to October. There is often the flexibility to change dates at short notice, the option to bring a guest or buy additional days at a discount.


The 4 x 4

Four days spread across the season on four different chalkstreams for an early season opener, a prime Mayfly date, the glorious summer evening rise and a caddis hatch to wrap it all up.
