Important: You will need to upload a passport style photo of yourself showing only a full face photo of yourself only, not with fish, pets or other people, to validate your membership, alternatively the Clubmate App can take a selfie, once uploaded you will not be able to change your photo. Club Baiiffs will be using their Clubmate App to validate your membership on the bank and failure to have provided a photo will result in you having to leave the fishery. You will receive a confirmation email from Clubmate and as it may be up to two weeks before you receive your membership card you will need to have a copy of the email with you when fishing.
Please check the venue information/rules prior to fishing as any rule changes will be updated on the Clubmate site. Match Closures etc will be posted on the Match Calendar and Club News pages of the Club website.
You can download the current Clubmate App for your Smartphone from the App Store associated with your phone (Apple Store or Play Store).
The only method of payment for your membership is through the Clubmate App using a Credit or Debit card.
