about the cotswold flyfishers
Cotswold Flyfishers is a club run entirely by volunteers. This means that we are able to offer a wide and varied range of fly fishing at a very reasonable cost. For this reason there is usually a waiting list to join.
The annual subscription is £470, although this is reviewed annually. There is a joining fee of £300 which is paid in two installments. The first installment of £150 is paid as a deposit upon application. Should you be offered a place and refuse it this deposit is forfeit. If we are unable to offer you a place you have the option of leaving your deposit with us and staying on the waiting list, or having it refunded and cancelling your application. The second installment of £150 is payable upon your first renewal, so you will have had a season with us before you have to decide whether or not you want to pay it. We find that most of our members do want to continue.
You must be over 18 to join the club, but youngsters below this age can fish free of charge if accompanied by a member. (Full details of this arrangement are in the handbook which is issued to all members.) If you are aged between 18 and 25 you are eligible for cadet membership. There is no joining fee and no waiting list for this membership category and the annual sub is £314. Upon reaching the age of 26 cadet members can move directly to full membership simply by paying the full sub. Cadet members are required to attend 2 working parties each year.
Members who have paid the full joining fee are eligible for a reduced subscription rate upon reaching the age of 75.
