  • how much are you willing to pay

    There is a new fishery opened nr me The price for a days fishing is £10.I normally pay between £5 and £7 depending on which fishery i go to do you think £10 is too much especially as winter is upon us and you cant fish for as long as some fisheries reduce prices for the winter. Any thoughts lads.

    Yes, far too much unless you live down south and earn a fortune!

      It's a free market. people are free to choose.

      If they're charging too much for what you get then people won't go, and they won't make money.

        Depends on whats in there,most of the specimen day ticket waters i fish charge £1.00 per hr+, but for that i expect a decent chance of a BIG fish and the use of at least 2 rods,if its a typical commercial then it seems a little expensive,other things do have a bearing on cost,my syndicate water sounds expesive,but the facilities,exclusivity,safety and general peace and tranquility make it imo good value for money,at the end of the day its down to the individual as to wether they consider a venue is value for money.Regards Peter.

                it seems expensive,but if he can get anglers in at that price,it must be half decent.Im tighter than a ducks harris,but i would sooner pay £10 for a good days fishing,than £6 for a poor days sport.

                  Well it,s a new fishery with 60 acres so i think there are 7 pools but i was talking to someone who has been and blanked so not to sure. but i do think it,s a bit to Much to pay especially as it,s a new fishery.

                      Sounds to me like another money making venture run by people who know nothing about fishing and are in it for the money. Few do a good job of it and then wonder why they cant make it pay. Like said earlier people will vote with their feet.

                        Depends on what sort of fish it holds to be honest i would willingly pay £10 if the pool held big carp, tench and bream.

                        I pay on average around £5 for a days fishing and on the odd occasion £3 but never over £7.
                        The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but obtainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.

                          No more than £8 for a days fishing.

                          Ive been to places that charge £10 so i try to get there as early as possible and leave when kicked off just to get my moneys worth.
