Presidents Trophy rescheduled

The Presidents Trophy match listed in the rulebook for Sunday 18th August has now been moved to Saturday 7th September.  This means that Totham Pit will now be open to all members for the whole of the 17-18th Aug weekend and will be closed to non competitors from 6.30am on Sat 7th Sep until 4pm in the afternoon.

Open day at Totham Pit on Sun 21st Jul

We are having an open day at Totham Pit in Great Totham (CM9 8NN) on Sunday 21st July 2013 between 9.30am and 4pm offering free fishing for all with no rod licence required.  Membership discounts are also available if you pick up an application form on the day.  Please note that all children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult.  For more details contact Denise on 01621 857427.  Members are reminded that Totham Pit is still open to members/night fishing, as long as they don’t mind hopefully loads of people walking past, and even stopping to chat.

Totham Pit – the venue for this year’s open day.

Thank you Dennis

Thank you to Dennis Hubbard for supplying and delivering scaffold clips to Totham Pit for use at future working parties.

Wire trace for dead fish baits rule amendment

Following a sensible request from one of our members the committee have agreed to waive the compulsory wire trace for dead fish baits rule (7.5 page 12 of rulebook) on waters known not to contain any pike.  This is with immediate effect so with the exception of Totham Pit, Little London and Heron Hall you can now cast out a dead fish bait without using a wire trace.

No stillwater close season for pike

Members are reminded that we do not have a close season for pike on our stillwaters (as far as we know only Totham Pit, Little London and Heron Hall contain pike in any significant numbers).

New Hall re-opened for fishing on 1st May

We know how difficult it can be to please all of our members all of the time.  Some like to fish maintained waters with an almost large garden pond feel to them such as Little Park or with large dug out swims to house bivvies etc like Totham Pit or Slough House Farm.  Others prefer the wild natural feel of our more isolated venues which are overgrown; some might even say bordering on neglected.  We like to offer a mix of venues and regard some of them as natural such as our section of the River Blackwater at Wickham Bishops.  New Hall fits firmly into this last category and those that fish there seem to like it that way?  Our Head Bailiff paid a recent visit to fish one of the 3 fishable swims (he is threatening to open up a few more though!) and took this very respectable bag of roach:


He said there are some rudd and bream in this net of fish too but I couldn’t spot them buried under all of those roach!
