Can Sportvisserij Nederland transfer my membership to another fishing club?

The VISpas is the proof of membership of a fishing club. Each club has its own statutes, regulations and club membership fee. This means that Sportvisserij Nederland cannot transfer your membership to another club. The only way to switch is by resigning your membership of one club and becoming a member of another.

This means that, for the current calendar year, you will remain a member of the fishing club, of which you have resigned your membership. If you terminate your membership prior to 1 October, your membership ends on 31 December.

However, the board of your fishing club may decide to refund the money if, for example, you have accidentally registered with the wrong club. Sportvisserij Nederland will always try to help you in cases like these by not passing the VISpas on to the club in question, provided that the VISpas in question is returned to Sportvisserij Nederland. A fishing club can refund the payment without any financial consequences.

However, the decision on whether or not to refund the contribution always lies with the board of the fishing club, and Sportvisserij Nederland has no say in this.

Please refer to the address finder for a club’s contact information.
