Next working party – Howells will be closed on Sun 23rd Nov

The next working party will be held on Sunday 23rd November at Howells and the boat will be used to dredge out fallen branches and trim back bushes around the island.  All members are welcome to help out, please meet up in the car park at Totham Pit at 8am to help load up the boat or from 8.30am at Howells if you are able to assist.  This opportunity will also be used to trim back any overgrown swims.  Howells will be closed from 8am for the whole day, but those helping at the workparty can fish there in the afternoon.

Raking around the island to remove fallen branches and lost tackle, such as this bird’s nest of line, will benefit both the carp and those fishing Howells in the future.

Please only carry out bankside works sanctioned by the fishery management officer

Members are reminded that the enlarging of swims, cutting of trees and laying of straw at Totham Pit (or any of our other fisheries) without the express permission of the fishery management officer is in breach of rule 5.4 and liable to result in the withdrawal of your night fishing permit or membership.

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.
