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 33 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 £3 per token with Token Fishery beats ranging from 2 to 5 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. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A VALID EA ROD LICENCE BEFORE FISHING.
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 relevant pages on this website for full details. There are a few less beats this year although a hard copy brochure is available for purchase at £4,99; please refer to the ‘buy tokens’ page or give us a call. As last year, all of 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 continues to offers a wide range of opportunities to go fishing on a flexible basis at very reasonable prices that we really hope you enjoy. For all of the latest information please keep an eye on this website. Have a great season. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A VALID EA ROD LICENCE BEFORE FISHING.

iGhillie Video Fishing Guides
We have 10 short film clips that introduce you to a fishing beat or provide interesting information about fishing in the Westcountry. The ghillie for each film will lead you through how best to approach the beat in question, the best techniques to use and the main areas to concentrate on. The Tips and Tactics film is a compilation of information, both angling and environmental that fishermen may be interested in and the Fly Tying film aims at giving the beginner confidence to have a try at tying their own flies and provide tips to the more experienced fly tiers.
