All remaining senior matches are cancelled

Unfortunately all of our remaining senior club matches, which were all to be fished on the canal, have had to be cancelled following the unexpected resignation of our Senior Match Secretary Russ Samuels at the September committee meeting.  Russ stated that poor turnouts at recent matches had lead to his decision.  Russ was the longest serving member on the current committee and we thank him for all of his hard work over many years of service to the club.

If anyone else would like to pick up the reigns and run the remaining seven matches on the canal please contact one of the committee members as listed in the 2017 rulebook.

The open pike match at Totham Pit on Sunday 26th November will hopefully still be going ahead but any changes will be posted up as we hear them.

New portaloo at Totham Pit

Totham Pit is our third night fishery to be equipped with a portaloo which is now located in the Totham Pit car park for all members to use.

St Peters Walk and Totham Pit

Members fishing at Totham Pit are reminded not to park in St Peters Walk but to use the society car park which is closer to our only entry point to the lake situated directly opposite the car park.  Any member requiring an access key can purchase one from the membership secretary or from one of our three agents.

It has also been bought to our attention again that someone has been putting their rubbish after fishing in the dog poo bin that is located on the footpath to St Peters Walk.  Please stop this as filling the bin up results in the dog walkers throwing their dog mess bags on the floor around the bin with is not acceptable.

Finally any member found leaving litter around the lake will be liable to receive a life ban, please take your litter home with you.

Totham Pit weed removal on 25th and 26th August

Some bankside work was also carried out so that the boat could gain access to the lake:

Great day at Totham Pit

Great day at Totham Pit today, this little lot by 11am. Went on to land 2 more Tench and about 15 Roach all 8oz+ but lost 4 more Tench and a Carp in the weed :(

Thanks to Paul Kemp for the picture.


Biggest Tench 6lb 8ozish, Biggest Bream 7lbish, Rudd just over 1lb.

Great job on the trees by the way – Kelvin Willis.

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before and after the trim up.

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.
