I'm lucky where I am that I just join one of the Oxford and district angling association affiliated clubs for £10-£15 which gives me about 5 stretches of the Thames, couple of the Cherwell and couple of the Oxford Canal. Cheap enough that I can justify just getting day tickets for the other venues I fish.
Private syndicate with 2 lakes £200. Our first year in it
Match group £40.
2 other clubs one @ £55 and the other @ £90. Will drop one of these if the syndicate lives up to promise
All prices include the lad as well.
Just got to find time now
