Totham Pit work party weekend

We will be closing Totham Pit on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th May to carry out a two day work party clearing brush, stacking cut timber and improving swims.

This is open to all members and we would very much appreciate any help you can give, even if it’s only one day.

Anyone helping out both days that wishes to fish the Saturday night this is fine, even if you don’t hold a night ticket. We’ll be lighting a bbq Saturday evening so bring a beer and a burger to chuck on and join us for a bit of a social.

Many thanks -  The Totham Pit Team.

High water at Little Park now on the move

Thank you to Ryan and Ken for clearing the blocked overflow pipe at Little Park which had started to flood.

Hopefully the water level will return to normal in the next day or two.

Howells gate

The Howells gate is regularly being left unlocked by members, not farm workers.  While we appreciate that the padlock can be a bit tricky to close at the best of times, the next person caught leaving the gate unsecured will be made an example of - The Howells Bailiffing Team.

The new 2018 rulebook will be with members soon

The new 2018 red rulebooks are now printed and the labels are imminent so expect one to drop through your door within the next week or so, or as fast as the Chairman can post them out.  A limited number of rulebooks are also available from JP Tackle and Angling Essentials if you are about to renew your membership.

Would you like to be our new Senior Match Secretary?

We are looking for a member to organise some senior matches over the coming season and beyond.  If you are interested in this voluntary unpaid position please contact an existing committee member who can then put your name forward at the next meeting.

Keepnet rules update

The following rule changes were agreed at the 4th Apr committee meeting:

Fish care rule 5.15:  No carp to be kept in keepnets except in society matches.  All other fish up to 12 inches in length may be retained in a keepnet.  It is recommended that all other fish over 12 inches in length be weighed and returned immediately.  No fish to be kept in captivity for longer than 6 hours.  Any fish showing signs of distress must be released upon demand of a Society bailiff.  The Society recommends that members be in possession of a fish care product e.g. Klinik.  Keepnets may be banned temporarily on individual Society waters subject to local conditions.  This rule does not apply to Society rivers.

Matches rule 9.3:  Fish up to 12 inches in length, including carp, caught during Society matches can be retained in carp friendly keepnets.  All fish over 12 inches in length must be weighed and returned immediately.  Rulers will be issued to all competitors to avoid confusion.  In silver fish only matches all carp over 12 inches in length will count as 1lb.
