Little Parks turn for a trim up

With a big thank you to Jamie and Ryan the swims and pathway around Little Parks have now been trimmed up as they were getting quite overgrown.

Some more good news is that the gravel hump on the access track where the landowner has laid an irrigation pipe has now been smoothed off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and the leaking dam wall on Little Park Top Lake has been relined with clay and the whole area tidied up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Further trim ups are already underway at Slough House Farm and Totham Pit and others are planned for Slough House West and various sections of the canal.

Our next working party will be at Slough House Farm on Sun 25th June

Our next working party will be at Slough House Farm on Sun 25th Jun to strim up and take the boat over to the island to trim it up.  All members wanting to help out are welcome from around 9am onwards.  Please contact Paul Kemp for further info.

The end of the season fast approaches

Just a reminder that all 2016-17 memberships expire at midnight this Friday 31st March.  As requested by the committee renewal forms for 2017-18 have not been automatically posted out to all members this year which has saved the society several hundred pounds on printing and postage which has already been re-invested in fish stocks (more ide have been purchased and stocked into Rook Hall, Slough House West and Heron Hall), Siltex to improve the water quality at Totham Pit and upgraded portaloos for Howells and Slough House Farm.  The renewal form has been emailed to all members who gave us their email address and posted out to anyone who supplied two stamped self addressed envelopes to the membership secretary when they joined.  You can also print off a copy of the renewal form here or from the membership renewal page.  If you do not have access to a printer simply send your membership card, cheque and stamped sae(s) to the membership secretary or take along your card and payment to one of our three agents (JP Tackle, Angling Essentials or Specimen Angling).

Any unsold Howells night permits are now available to members on the waiting list on a first come first serve basis. Availability can be checked on the Night Permits tab above.

Our first reported thirty of 2017

Pleased to say Howells has done its first 30 of the year over the weekend, still 2 months or more until spawning , we should see a few more over that time , most fish that are coming out are over 20lb with a lot of upper 20’s all looking nice.

Hopefully the thirties in Totham Pit and Slough House Farm will now follow suit and put in an appearance soon…

Portaloo switch over

Good news, the shiny new portaloos have been delivered to Slough House Farm and Howells and are ready to use.


Thank you to Ryan for sorting these out for us.

Night fishing at Slough House Farm

There has been a bit of confusion recently so just to clarify, all night permit holders are allowed to fish two consecutive nights at Slough House Farm between 1st Nov and 31st Mar (followed by a 24 hour break from that fishery).  The one night restriction returns on 1st Apr.  All other night venues allow three consecutive nights fishing all year round.  Members joining for the 2017-18 season early with a standard night permit can start night fishing from Christmas day onwards.
