Bog Grove – a favourite venue in the depths of winter as it will even produce fish on days like this.

Thank you Earney and Allan

It was not a small thing as I live 24 miles away and this must have made them late getting home. Other members helped me with my gear back to the car. So thank you all for being there when I needed you.

First shoot at Slough House West

The man who runs the little shooting syndicate on Slough House West has informed us that they propose to hold their first small shoot this coming Tues 16th Sep in the evening at around dusk.  He will warn any anglers using the lake and put up a notice at the entrance to the fishery.

Sleeping bag found

A sleeping bag was found at Totham Pit on Tuesday evening.  Please contact the membership secretary if it is yours and he will pass on the email address of the member who found it.

Organised shoots at Slough House West

The owner of new lake Slough House West has recently informed us that a shooting syndicate use the lake and it will be closed for occasional organised shoots.  Notification of these shoots will be by way of a notice at the entrance to the fishery and the lake will not (at this time) be subjected to a close season similar to those we are obligated to enforce at Rook Hall and Whitehouse Farm as part of our lease agreements.  Hopefully disruption will be kept to a minimum as we believe that the shooting parties are only active at dawn and dusk.

Slough House West – please do not fish if a sign is on display to say that shooting is in progress (not that you would want to unless you wear a bullet proof vest and tin hat).
