The Scottish Fishing Passport is the main product of The Experience Passport Ltd, a new company which was founded in the autumn of 2018.
The Scottish Fishing Passport has been designed and developed by Scott Mason along with input from many fishery managers and anglers throughout not only Scotland but the rest of the UK. Many of you will know Scott from his work within the Fisheries Management sector for the previous 6 years. Scott has an exhaustive list of contacts many of which have played some part in the development of this project.
Many of you will have heard about syndicate fishing, well The Scottish Fishing Passport is very similar. On registration your Scottish Fishing Passport will run for 12 months, giving you the opportunity to fish at many locations throughout Scotland for the duration of your subscription. As this is 365 day subscription the price breaks down to as little as £1.32 per day.
The Scottish Fishing Passport has been developed to ensure salmon fishing in Scotland remains affordable and is available to all, which is why The Scottish Fishing Passport is one of only a few places to offer a direct debit option.
Fishing has been secured throughout Scotland on various locations, stretching as far as the river Wick town to the world famous river Tweed. All beats that are on the passport are on at a different level. Some beats have rods available every day while others have fishing available every week, two weeks or month. While other fisheries on the passport are on at a more ad hoc level, some are even more seasonal with certain beats providing spring fishing with others providing summer and back end availability.
A national fishing permit is available in other countries throughout the world so why should Scotland not have one! We know that we have some of the best fishing in the world available right on our doorstep so we believe this really must be showcased.
How The Passport Works
At a short time after subscription to The Scottish Fishing Passport you will receive a welcome letter which will include your photographic identification card along with advice on how best to work your passport.
Members are limited to only holding two booked days in their account at any one time, further fishing will not be able to be retained until your account has 1 or 0 booked days. This maintains fairness towards booking and means a person cannot book all the rods in one location at one time.
Bookings can be made up to 48hours prior to the selected date. Most locations have two rods available.
Cancelation of booked fishing days can be made at a minimum of 24hours notice through the website or by email.
Booking of fishing is on a first come first serve basis. With the booking condition set that only two booked days in your account at any one time, this gives members a fair and realistic approach of booking the fishing available on the passport.
However as there is only a limited number of rods available on the passport at any one time there is no guarantee you will get your desired date, however in this situation we would encourage our members to contact us as we may be able to secure more fishing in the desired location.
After the one of payment of £479.00 is made or after the monthly fee of £49.00 NO other payment is required to secure any of the fishing held within the passport.
As the season progresses so will the journey of The Scottish Fishing Passport. We welcome our members to highlight which rivers, beats or fisheries they would like to be included in The Scottish Fishing Passport and this can be done through our contact section.
