Howells night permits are now sold out

Howells night permits for 2017-18 are now sold out as the last five were offered to members on the waiting list last night.  Sorry if you missed out, another waiting list for next season will start soon.

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.

Membership prices held

There are no membership fee increases for next season.  If you would like to buy a 2017-18 membership please apply using this Application Form 2017-18 and enclose two photos of every applicant or your existing membership cards if renewing.  The membership secretary will turn applications around within a couple of days.  New memberships are valid from now and members can fish the last three months of the 2016-17 season free of charge.  Standard night permits are also available.  This early joiner offer is available directly from the membership secretary and JP Tackle (daytime and night tickets) and Specimen Angling in Springfield with Angling Essentials following soon.

Howells night tickets increased from 50 to 60 next season

It was agreed at the December committee meeting to increase the number of Howells night permits that we issue from 50 to 60 next season and the first ten people on the waiting list have already been offered a place by email.  More information can be found on the Night Permits page above.

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.

Autumn reminder

Members are reminded that Rook Hall and Whitehouse Farm reservoir are now closed for the 4 month duck shooting season and will re-open on Wednesday 1st Feb 2017.  There are also duck shoots scheduled for Slough House West so please look out for signs at the entrance to the fishery, especially on Fridays.

Night fishing at Bog Grove has now started and runs through until the 30th April 2017.

3 rods are now allowed on all venues for all 120 standard night permit and 50 Howells night permit holders as well as for members who have purchased the £30 winter 3 rod upgrade.  Regardless of which night permit you have you can use 3 rods on all venues including Howells.

The sun sets on another summer’s fishing at Rook Hall.
