The principle behind the scheme is simple – a healthy, natural river supports a wilder fish, attracts more anglers, and increases landowner payments. The idea is to create a rewarding experience for anglers and landowners alike. Small token payments support landowners (and the administration of the scheme) in maintaining a natural river, while insight into catches at each beat tells us more about the health of the watercourse.
To add function and ease to the process of fishing our beats, the scheme now runs through the ‘Fish Pass’ mobile app. Anglers can now buy tokens on their phone, find the beats, redeem fishing and even file important catch return data all from the easy-to-use app.
Fish Pass has been designed to be a digital update to the Peak Angling Passport Scheme. All the function of the website, the traditional tokens and the ease of fishing that the passport gives has been reformed into an app for either iPhone or Android devices.
Do you own a riparian stretch of land that may suit the scheme? We are always looking to expand our network of available fishing beats. Even small sections of river are an asset and can provide some great fishing.
