    I don't think that gives locals much incentive to fish the local on a regular basis.

    Al
    Maybe it is because visitors are expected to fish less often than regulars. Just guessing here.
    It's a paycheck, Jack.

    I think my river has a 10 mile radius from the river for full membership. Although I think this will change soon as the days of waiting lists for membership have gone. Visitors do pay more proportionately, but I doubt the coffers are over rich. As most are extremely happy with what they get, a weeks fishing for the price of a couple of still water rainbow days cost, many return year after year.

    Same membership price across the board with our club, membership numbers are dwindling at an alarming rate & we're thankful for whatever we can add to the coffers. I think that seems to be the case with many clubs here in the south of Wales.
    2019 & it will be time for a change.

    1) Salisbury (Wiltshire) & District Angling Club.
    Membership 265 annually.
    'Premium' chalkstream trout fishing on the Avon above Salisbury, Wylye, and Nadder (also includes coarse fishing in lakes and sections of the Avon below Salisbury).
    About eleven miles (at an educated guess) in total, much of it both banks. Some of it is 'beat' fishing - pick a empty beat when you turn up, some of it is 'free ranging'.
    Waiting list about a year if you live within 14 miles of Salisbury cathedral.
    Three to four years if you live outside that area. It used to be five years so like yours membership has possibly declined.

    2) A commercial 'club like' fishery (but it is not owned by the anglers) on the River Test. Five miles, all double bank, plus some carriers. It is divided into rotating beats so you fish a different one every time you go.
    One fixed day a week 1st May - 15th October.

    I'm in both.
    But reading on this forum about other people's fishing I genuinely wish I lived in some other part of the UK. Except for the Salisbury club with its long waiting list for people who don't live near Salisbury (I'm just outside its 14 mile 'locals' area) affordable/accessible river trout fishing is near non-existent to many people around here.

    It really does depend in where you live. River fishing is easily available north of the border.
    But then it does rain a lot.

    I have river fishing memberships for two clubs.

    One is 35 and the other is 15

    That's per season...

    It is a wider issue than just depending on where you live . Huge variation around the country in terms of cost and value . I agree many charge more for out of town members although with the dwindling membership of many this changing . It all comes down to value for money these days . People have less disposable cash than 25 years ago. Around that time I joined the local "Posh " club subs were 300 plus 300 to join . Waiting list of around 3 years if you knew someone . Now Club is about 25% down on its full membership . No waiting list , No joining fee annual subs of 500 ish. Club is offering cut price first year membership to get people to join... I stay because I live 10 minutes away and fish it a lot . Truth is its to expensive with better options an hour away but i like the convenience . Another club im in has 2.5 miles of unstocked pristine largely spring fed stream with superb browns and grayling . Its 50 a year 30 minutes away , waiting list is closed I was on list for 8 years.. extraordinary value for money . My very local club 5 minutes away is 100 / year short waiting list WBT and grayling some sea trout ( a member had 8 1/2 lber ) couple of nights ago . Brilliant value at 100 / year . Truth is to many clubs are suffering because fishing quality has decreased but land agents and owners want more rent... Anglers now have still waters where they are more likely to catch.
