SAA members can also purchase low cost season tickets to fish the River Creed salmon and sea trout fishery. Youth SAA members may fish the River Creed for free if accompanied by an adult River Creed permit holder.

SAA membership provides a number of additional benefits. Local, but not visiting, SAA members have access to discounted salmon and sea trout fishing on several estates (details usually provided with membership payment) and all SAA members obtain free entry into the Association’s various annual competitions.
