Default Cost of a cast?

It has probably been discussed before, but off the back of the thread moaning about greedy clubs, I would be interested to know what outlay for a seasons fishing you make. I am only talking about permits, syndicates and club membership. Not tackle bait or EA Licences. But it would include the total cost of day tickets for a season - approximate.

I am a member of two syndicates - total £615 plus a decent club @ £150 plus a couple of odd long stay day ticket sessions throughout the year that me to about £100.

So a total of £865 ish. It seems a lot of money, but I spend a lot of time fishing, if I worked out the hourly cost it would be a bit more reasonable............ I hope

How about you?

£250 for my syndicate, and hopefully not a penny more. I've dropped all the other club tickets that I've had in the past. I dare say that I might venture to the odd day ticket water for a little variety or a confidence boost.

£70 for a membership of a commercial that has 10 lakes

£10 for club membership of a stretch of river

And about another 50 to 100 on day tickets

No money spent on fishing is wasted although it could be cheaper.

Most my income goes on fuel getting to different rivers around the country every trip is an adventure and worth every penny although i wish fuel prices were lower.

£400

I have access to 4 lakes, around 10 miles of coarse river and 3 miles of wild brown trout fly fishing. That should be enough to keep me going for a while.

£35 & £30 (double that without a concession) for two clubs that provide between them in excess of a dozen pits, 3 farm ponds, an estate lake and approximately a dozen stretches of river plus a couple of river syndicates/pits that I get FOC.

season ticket £70 for 4 lakes ,and about £30 for odd day tickets,

Had a plaster cast - cost me a round of cakes and a lot of mickey taking. All my own fault, I'm afraid I was very, very drunk......(with apologies to Lord Paul)

£75 for my club fee...and that's it.

I can't believe you pay that much to fish for a year Terry......my missus would have my knackers for garters.
