You don't have to join a club if you buy your own insurance. :idea:

That was not a dig at you, I get numerous phone calls regarding POLSAF and the discount WSF members get also asking all sorts of questions and if they looked here it would have saved them a phone call :D :D :D :D :D

The main problem is the Insurance, POLSAF require you to have a minimum of 5 MILLION POUNDS Public Liability Insurance and the easiest way is to join a club that has that amount, as we do :D :D :D

http://polsaf.co.uk/membership/

If you look on the POLSAF website, then you can either be a member of an affiliated club or join as a personal member. Personal members still need Public Liability Insurance. It is not difficult at all, you just get your own insurance ( there are loads of ways of doing this, easiest is to join one of the Sea Angling Federations as a personal member -- but is this much different from joining an angling club anyway ? ) then apply to POLSAF direct and pay them a personal membership for a permit.

Options :

Join a club, pay for a Permit to the club, will cost you £ 15 - £ 30 ( depending on the club membership fees ).

Join as a private member, will cost you £ 20 for a Permit + insurance ( however much you want to imagine - £ 10 for a personal membership of Welsh Fed of Sea Anglers http://www.wfsa.org.uk/pm%20application.htm )
I am not a number !

Questions are a burden to others, answers a prison for oneself.
