Club Membership

Membership

Ross on Wye Angling Club membership fees are listed below. Once the membership is at capacity all further applicants may request to be placed on a waiting list until places become available.

Please complete our membership form (click here) and send to  our Membership Secretary at rossmembership@googlemail.com to apply to join.

(Please note, we operate a waiting list as we are currently full. New applicants can expect to wait one or two seasons before being invited to join. Day Tickets to fish the Town Water are available (£10), and if you know a current Member, they can take you as a Guest for £15).

The Club operates a differential membership subscription that slightly favours Local Anglers. Local Anglers provide the ‘work-force’ the Club needs to maintain the banks, and so this reduction in Membership fees exists to encourage this help. This also ensures that the Club remains first and foremost a local Club and reflects the approach of many clubs in the Wye Valley.

To be deemed ‘Local’ your postcode must be as follows:

HR 1, 2, 4, 8 and 9
GL 14, 15, 16,17, 18 and 19
