The Westcountry Angling Passport

The Angling Passport Scheme offers fishing for wild brown trout, sea trout, salmon, grayling and coarse fish in unrivalled surroundings.  There are 38 beats available as Token Fisheries and also the extensive Dartmoor Fishery on the East and West Dart and tributaries.  In addition, Westcountry Angling Passport tokens can be used at all of the South West Lakes Trust Fisheries and also on most of the other Passport Schemes around the UK.

Tokens are bought in books of 10 valued at £2.50 per token with Token Fishery beats ranging from 2 to 6 tokens per angler per day.  The Dartmoor Fishery operates on a day, week or season ticket basis starting at £10 for a day’s brown-trouting; tokens can be used as payment or part payment to purchase Dartmoor tickets.

As in previous years, tokens can be bought here on the website or through our token outlets.  Dartmoor Fishery tickets are available through the network of Dartmoor outlets; please refer to the website for full details.

There are a few changes from last year; we no longer offer the facility to book beats online, and we are not producing a paper brochure – however all the beat information can be found on the passport website where it can be downloaded to your smartphone or printed out.  The Westcountry Angling Passport offers a huge wide of opportunities to go fishing on a flexible basis at very reasonable prices that we really hope you enjoy.  Please check out the website and let us know what you think and tight lines for 2015!
