Club Tickets.

How many do you have ??

At the moment, I have three. A Burton Mutual, a Scunthorpe and a local club ticket that only has stillwaters on it. But as of next season I may be adding to that with another one. I may drop the Scunthorpe and the local ticket to make just the two though. I've hardly used the Scunny ticket and I've not been on our local club waters at all this season. I've been a member of this club for a few years on and off, even serving on the committee for quite a while in my younger days, but I'm not sure I'll really fish it again.

3 for me.
vauxhall, Biggleswade & Hitchin, Bedford AC

The first two of these have become slightly harder to get these past two years, with books selling out very quickly. Biggleswade have a system whereby current members have priority to re-join, which I think is a good idea. Vauxhall don’t make any provision for this so it’s a case of hitting the website or Tackle shop as soon as the books are released. Bedford AC, being a river only club haven’t had quite the same uptick in demand for their books as the other two, though they have sold more books than normal. I’m guessing that most of the lockdown newbies will want the instant success of the commercials, or at least as near to it as you can get with a club or society, so that invariably means carp and still water.


I’m forever looking at which other clubs I could join and around Bedford I feel spoilt for choice. There’s Ampthill, Shefford, Blunham, Verulum, Olney & Clifton, Luton, Leighton Buzzard, Phoenix….. to name just a few, but with the three tickets giving me access to 16 lakes, and umpteen miles of the Great Ouse, Ivel, and a section of the canal, I figure I’m probably covered for most of my fishing needs.

That don’t stop me looking and lusting after fresh waters though.

Oh Simon, what a question ! Just had a count and I’m on seven. There’s at least one that will get the chop next year (I think 🤪)

Mostly Trent-based now:

Ashfield Angling (since 2004/5)
Newark Piscatorials
Notts Fed

Although, sadly, they will all be lapsing soon☹️ as the missus and I are in the throws of moving house (after 17 years here in Hinckley!) to Lancashire, in Huyton (for family reasons) during the next couple of weeks, and at 75 years of age (both of us) it will not be practical to undertake an average 125-mile (2.5-hour) each-way journey to continue to fish with my usual Trent day-trips (I don't do bivvies and overnights).🥱

On the plus side, however, after a bit of research, I plan to spend the next few seasons exploring totally new territory on the Ribble around the Preston area. I have also been in touch recently with a "local" BFW member who has loads of Ribble experience (and plenty of successes) who is going to provide his invaluable knowhow and to guide me on a brand new venue of a river that has a good head of barbel, but also has its own specific quirks and characteristics to get accustomed to! (Oh I do love a challenge!!)
And I hope he won't mind if I publicly acknowledge Gary Wagstaff for offering to impart his company and wealth of knowledge to this "Ribble virgin" when I eventually manage to get there👍👏

Naturally, I will still be logging-in as usual to keep up with the latest news, reviews and catch reports.

Shame that you're having to give up Ashfield Angling but at least it means I'll be one place closer to getting a spot 😄
