Fishing Costs

The Dee is widely recognised as one of the UK’s best rivers for spring salmon, prices reflect this status. As with all of our activities we aim to keep the costs as low as possible however we also want to balance that with giving you the best possible chance to catch a springer.

The cost of the fishing for this trip is £330 per person.
