Associate Members are not permitted to fish at night, Juniors are allowed to night fish providing that they are always accompanied by and under the strict control and supervision of an adult member. Only one Junior per member. Visitors can only night fish by obtaining a night visitors ticket for the Harefield lakes only.
There are two ways to obtain a night ticket: 1) For a specific date on any water (free), by telephone (number is on the reverse of membership card) on Sundays and Wednesdays between 6.00pm - 9.00 pm only. The telephone will not be switched on at any other time. Do not leave messages other than cancellations as they will be ignored.

When I was a lad, clubs such as ours were inundated with junior members. Nobody foresaw a situation where there would be precious little new blood coming into our great sport. As time’s gone by, it gradually dawned on us that we barely had a junior section worth the name. I don’t think angling is alone in struggling to attract the next generation. With this in mind we have started to move forward trying to encourage the next generation to want a tackle box as well as an xbox.
Over the last couple of years, we have reviewed our junior memberships and now offer tiered memberships for under 16’s. These are available to members of the club to bring family members and give them the chance to not just enjoy the sport but to see all the wildlife we take for granted in a lovely natural environment.
We firstly offer Day Kingfisher membership for those wishing to introduce youngsters from the age of 6 - 12 years to the sport. During the hours of daylight. This is open to all members from their first year and can be applied for through the Membership Secretary.
Once the adult member has been a member for more than one season, Kingfisher night tickets are available to apply for youngsters from the age of 6 - 12 years, this gives the option for a youngster to fish with their parent or guardian during the hours of daylight. They are also allowed to stay the night but not fish until the morning with a maximum stay of 24 hours, thus giving them the experience of seeing the wildlife and the chance to watch the sun rise over the water. This is open to members after they have completed their first year and application for this is done to the Kingfisher Co-ordinators.
Finally, we offer a traditional junior membership for those over the age of 12 and under 6 years. Junior members under the age 15 must be accompanied and under control of a full member, however they are entitled to fish at night with the relevant night permit and only one junior per full member at night.
