Beckingham Hall is CLOSED

Regrettably Beckingham Hall is closed until further notice and there is a notice on the gate at the entrance to the lake.  Updates will be posted here.  Sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

New restrictions at Whitehouse Farm

The owner of Whitehouse Farm has asked us to apply the following restrictions with immediate effect:

Junior members (aged under 16) can no longer fish the lake unless accompanied by an adult member aged 18+.

No fishing allowed after dusk (30 minutes after sunset).

An amount of litter has also been picked up at Whitehouse Farm, anybody caught littering will be banned for life.

These new restrictions will be reviewed at the committee meeting on 1st March and finalised before the new season starts on 1st April.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Totham Pit treated with Siltex

Totham Pit was treated with Siltex over the weekend to try and improve the water quality and growth rates of the fish.  There are further plans to remove the weed that clogged up the shallows last season, if it returns this year, as the thick silt and de-oxygenation caused by the weed at night in the shallows are believed to be the main threat to the carp as the water warms up in the spring

The end of the season fast approaches

Just a reminder that all 2016-17 memberships expire at midnight this Friday 31st March.  As requested by the committee renewal forms for 2017-18 have not been automatically posted out to all members this year which has saved the society several hundred pounds on printing and postage which has already been re-invested in fish stocks (more ide have been purchased and stocked into Rook Hall, Slough House West and Heron Hall), Siltex to improve the water quality at Totham Pit and upgraded portaloos for Howells and Slough House Farm.  The renewal form has been emailed to all members who gave us their email address and posted out to anyone who supplied two stamped self addressed envelopes to the membership secretary when they joined.  You can also print off a copy of the renewal form here or from the membership renewal page.  If you do not have access to a printer simply send your membership card, cheque and stamped sae(s) to the membership secretary or take along your card and payment to one of our three agents (JP Tackle, Angling Essentials or Specimen Angling).

Any unsold Howells night permits are now available to members on the waiting list on a first come first serve basis. Availability can be checked on the Night Permits tab above.

The 2017 rulebook is at the printers

I am pleased to report that the new 2017 rulebook is with the printer and still on track to be sent out to all members who have rejoined for the 2017-18 season in April along with the new Tails Up catalogue giving members a chance to purchase bait at a special discounted rate.
