Canal Season Tickets

In the summer of 2009 the Scottish Federation for Coarse Angling signed a landmark agreement with British Waterways to take control of all fishing on the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals.

Having obtained the fishing rights, the SFCA decided to revolutionise the way in which that fishing was controlled and paid for. Instead of continuing with the old ineffective, labour intensive and costly mechanism of selling day and season tickets, a decision was taken to give away the fishing FREE of charge with Annual Individual Membership of the SFCA.

Annual membership runs from 1st April through to 31st March of the following year and prices are:

  • Adult annual membership – £ 5.00
  • OAP/Disabled annual membership –  £ 3.00
  • Junior Annual/Day membership * – FREE

*Junior membership is open to everyone aged 16 years or under on 1st April of the year for which membership is applied.

Since taking control of the canal network the Federation has used this unique facility, spanning the central belt, to promote coarse angling in Scotland. This creates the opportunity for young Scots to access FREE fishing in a productive and safe environment.
