If it was a well run lake with courteous respectful members and a reasonable number of members I would happily pay £850. I used to tell a previous syndicate I fished to double the price and halve the members and I would have paid it as would many others. 50 members is not a syndicate itís a money making venture for someone somewhere. There is nothing wrong with that as you know what you are joining.
Unfortunately lakes in Essex are generally rammed and still expensive. Which is why I am happy to drive a couple of hours and fish in relative solitude. Not interested in fishing for big fish or lots of them. I go fishing for peace and quiet and to be at one with nature nowadays. Just as well as I donít catch a lot......

my syndicate lake has been rammed, on 3 occasions I turned up and the lake was sooooo rammed there was no spaces in the car park and i had to return home. At £550 per year to only fish a few times due to it being too busy is a joke especially as the cost is going up another 100 this year. No thanks, I'll give it a miss.

Lt's face it - Syndicates in the truest sense are pretty rare these days, Most 'syndicates' are really members only waters.

I think there are too many factors to be able to say if that price increase is reasonable or not. Size of water, number of members, stock, decent members, nice surroundings, well maintained etc etc.

I'd be happy to pay £800 for a decent water with few members, and nice surroundings, but less happy to pay it for a lesser quality water with **** members.

what I do know is running lakes costs a lot of money, and is rarely profitable. As long as I enjoyed fishing the place,If the owner has increased the subs but is looking to reinvest in the lake with either stock, or maintenance I wouldn't have an issue.

If he's increased the subs, has too many members, and is not reinvesting in the lake then its a different story.

If you didn't have any say in the price rise/stocking policy didn't you know you were joining a commercial venture and not a syndicate? If you did that's life and there's plenty of that type of water around mate.

Without know the facts as you haven't said........

but 20+ fish cost money, so the increase may on the face of it cover that?

I doubt your 'membership' will be missed if I'm honest if that's your attitude!

Whoever runs it must believe that enough people will still think that it's value for money and be able to fill the syndicate.
What did you want the two deceased fourties replaced with?
