Concessionary match on Tue 21st Oct moved to Howells

Please note that the venue for the concessionary match on Tuesday 21st October has been changed from the Tesco stretch of the canal to Howells.  Some of the members who fish Howells have mentioned that the carp have spawned successfully and there are now lots of small carp present.  Keith’s match will aim to move as many of these small carp as possible to the neighbouring stock pond, and ultimately on to the lakes at Little Park, where they will be more welcome in catches.  Keith has a good turnout for his matches so it is expected that the whole lake will be required so Howells will be closed to non-competitors from 7am to 4pm on the 21st October.  Hopefully this thinning out will enable the remaining larger carp to grow even bigger.

Unfortunately this did not go to plan – a full account can be found on the concessionary match results page.

Next shoot at Slough House West

The shooting syndicate at Slough House West intends to hold a shoot on the morning of Sunday 12th October at dawn. They should be all through by 0800 hours.  Members are asked not to arrive until after 8am to avoid disappointment (and bullets).  A sign will be on display at the entrance to the car park.

Keepnet ban lifted with immediate effect

It was agreed at the October committee meeting to lift the keepnet ban introduced to minimise the spread of KHV from other fisheries.  Water temperatures are now starting to drop which greatly reduces the risk of disease being transferred between venues.  A rule proposal will be put forward at the AGM for member discussion to decide if a blanket ban on keepnets in the summer months (except during organised society matches) should be introduced from next season onwards.

Landing net left at Slough House Farm

If anyone has found the Middy carp landing net left propped up against the fence to dry at Slough House Farm please contact the membership secretary who will put you in touch with the owner.  Thank you.
