    yeh can be a bit off putting especially as you cant bank on weather or river conditions and if its a write off then its money gone no refunds. you pay your money and take the chance, happened to me lost a couple of days due to a massive spate in scotland had to go drowned me sorrows in the local watering hole and wait & hope for the conditions to change.
    where would you say is the best value day ticket water for salmon or seatrout fishing , Mine would have to be the River Spey, Grantown on Spey Association or Abernethy Angling association If you go in june, july its fantastic usually plenty of fish about and the night time fishing for seatrout is second to none. heres a couple of links

    Buying salmon fishing by the day or week is just like placing a bet a the bookies. The odds have been worked out pretty thoroughly and whilst there is still a chance on some of the beats at the lower end of the price range, they base their prices solely on the historic actual catch returns. As with the horses though, occasionally luck is with you and long odds pay off. I still buy odd days like this, for example at the Fairnilee beat on the Tweed, but I'm under no illusions as to the likelyhood of success. or otherwise.

    That's why I'm sticking with my season ticket salmon fishing, which in my opinion gives you most 'bang for your buck'. My experience on association water, or season ticket water, is that catches are not always as accurately recorded - for some reason rods can become muddled on how much on how few they've caught! :whistle: :whistle:

    Tight lines, Rupert

    Seek and ye shall find Peter.
    I know you have tried a few of the Welsh clubs but try a year on the Teifi (Llandysul).
    I have only done a few weeks on different years down there but its seriously good for the soul and there seemed to be a few more grilse coming up with the 'sewin' than you would think.
    Beautiful water, great management, good season ticket price and probably only 2.5 hours drive for you.

    Hello Peter, I am in Bishop Auckland and District Angling Club. I was in the Northumbria Anglers Federation so that i could fish the Tyne and Coquet but the travelling killed it for me.
    Bishop Auckland have 25 miles of the River Wear which has to be the best Sea-Trout river in the country. They have 3 miles on the Tees for Salmo,Sea-Trout ,brown trout and Grayling..They also have stillwater trout fishing on the Witton Castle lakes with discounts to all its members.
    Full membership is £160 a season £50 joining fee.
    I think its marvelous value for Sea-Trout,Salmon,Brown-Trout,and Grayling.

    I talk to a few lads that dropped out of Bishop-Auckland Angling Club and lately the club has allowed past members who can show proof can reapply and not have to pay the £50 joining fee which at £110 a season cant be bad.
    I think if i had to fill the cars fuel tank up for a trip to say Scotland i would get a shock.
    Only last night i put a tenners worth in the tank moveing the gauge to 1/4 full in me little 206.
    Maybe a good idea to send Santa a note for a season ticket rather than smelly stuff and socks :wink: :happy:.

    I car'nt help with actual club info, but if you can find a decent club on the River Ure you would be in for a very pleasent surprise, the Salmon numbers in this river would rival just about all other rivers in England, and the spring run is up there with the very best.

    Here's one of a few caught this year, it was taken on the 1st of May, tide bright and liced.

    A lad i know , his mate fished on the tweed last week , apparantly he did very well with the salmon , but at £670 plus v.a.t it wanted to be top fishing... :scared: :scared:

    Oh my God £670 would get me six seasons on the Wear and Tees.
    I am not knocking it because i believe that if you can afford the best get it.
    It doesnt always mean though that spending a lot gets you the best.
    I really enjoy trying to find salmon and sea-trout from parts of the rivers where others dont try.
    I now get as much pleasure spending time looking around where i fish ,even looking into the history.
    Maybe its an old age thing or maybe i am becomeing more boreing.
    I just hope next season i get out more than i have in 2011 ,fingers crossed. :happy:

    Looks a nice clean fish. The Ure is a beautiful river I am surprised we dont see more sea trout. Some of them seem to be heading up the Derwent...

    Apparently the guy who has the Bolton estate water on the Ure had a considerable amount of Sea Trout.

    I fished the River Ure once a lot of years ago now and Spennythorpe was the streach.
    Seemed to remember getting a ticket at a pub.
    Its the Ure that runs near to Tanfield Trout Lakes isnt it ?.
