Rod snatchers

It has happened again.  This is at least the fourth time that just I know of where a member has had their rod pulled in at Bog Grove.  The carp in there are starting to get themselves a rod snatching reputation.  The latest victim is our very own concessionary match secretary Keith Leverett:
“Today I was fishing Bog Grove and I hooked a good carp.  When playing it I turned around to pick up my landing net and the carp turned turtle and dragged the rod out of my hand. I could not retrieve it as you know the fishery is very deep. The rod and reel are quite valuable. If anybody manages to hook it I will give them a reward. The rod was an 8′ Tricast wand and the reel a shimano aerlex.  As you can appreciate I am saddened.  Would you please put this in the news section and hopefully someone may hook it.  Many thanks – Keith”
The last rod to be pulled in was caught several days later and returned to its rightful owner and we are hoping that if you hook Keith’s rod we can also reunite this rod and reel with its owner.  If you do manage to land Keith’s rod please contact him on the number printed in the rulebook.

I have left a Free Spirit (camo) storm jacket at Totham Pit. It was left on a stalking session a couple of months ago in July or August? It is now approaching the time of year when I will definitely need it. Money is tight and I would appreciate if anyone who has picked it up would come forward and hand it in or give me a call on 07973348930 (no questions asked). Just begrudge paying out for a new one with xmas round the corner….
