How To Book

Online credit card booking

Go to the Find Fishing page and find the relevant beat and week that you want to fish. Click on the relevant week and a new window will open which will take you through our simple online booking system. Please have your credit or debit card handy and note that we will require you to enter your name, full postcode, contact telephone number and email address. If successful, you will be given immediate booking confirmation, receipt and joining instructions.

You will find a prompt to make a small donation to the River Dee Trust during the booking process. Please support the Trust by making a donation if you can-your donation goes a long way, with all donations securing match funding to allow important riverine improvements to be carried out that help improve salmon stocks.

Manual booking via office

Check the availability pages to see that the rods you want are available and that you are happy with the price. Then contact the FishPal office by telephone, fax or post (see 'Contact us' in 'Site Guide' menu) Please note that bookings cannot always be dealt with quickly if the office is busy, or is closed, and they are subject to intervening online bookings (see above). Office hours are Mon-Fri 9am-5pm (but sometimes open at other times too!)
