Second Rod Permits

From 1 Jan 2019, use of a second rod is included in Adult and Concessionary memberships without extra charge or need to have a Second Rod permit.

However, a second rod permit IS required by a Junior member who wishes to fish two rods, when allowed by individual fishery rules. An annual second rod permit costs £10 and can only be obtained from the General Secretary – see his contact details here.

Two rods may only be used:

– at Staveley large lake and Shipton lake, all year round
– between 16 June and the following 14 March (the Coarse fishing season) on all BCAA rivers and canal fisheries, except

  • Gargrave/Broughton (River Aire)
  • River Wharfe, and
  • Worton and Aysgarth (River Ure).

You must use both rods in one swim and also hold a current Environment Agency Licence.
