Bank Holiday Bonanza

News has already started to arrive of catches over the Bank Holiday weekend.  One of our bailiffs, Kris, has reported landing a 30lb 2oz Common from Howells (photo to follow).  Tom Howlett has made the news page again with a new personal best 24lb 1oz Mirror from Totham Pit.  Tom takes up the story –  ” I was fishing on the point and had to get in the margin to pull it back round as it was going round the corner, I was absolutely soaked but it was well worth it as it is my new pb!”.  Last but not least, friends Jack Childs and James Morris hooked carp at Bog Grove only seconds apart and got both into the net at the same time (see gallery).

Please remember that LEADCORE is banned on all of our fisheries

Members are reminded that Leadcore is banned on all of our waters (rule 45 refers).  We have received info from one of our bailiffs on Howells that over the last month he has seen three people using it on different waters and also when raking out weed on Howells he has pulled in a rig with leadcore attached and the lead clip superglued on!  Repeat offenders will be reported to the committee and may be subject to disciplinary action which can include the withdrawal of your night permit / syndicate place (rule 27.1 refers).

Congratulations to Clive Harwood…

Congratulations to Clive who recently beat his personal best twice with an 18lb Common from Totham Pit on the 7th May, closely followed by a 24lb Leather from Howells four days later.  Both of Clive’s fish can be viewed in the gallery.

New Club Rule

Rule – 48. Anglers fishing for carp at Howells Lake, Slough House Farm and Totham Pit must use a minimum of 10lb breaking strain line due to the extensive weed growth at these waters.
