Beckingham Hall update

I can now give an update on Beckingham Hall but unfortunately it is not good news.  The reason we had to close the lake was because it was put up for sale and the landowner wanted to sell the lake without sitting tenants.   This week it was confirmed that the new owner has decided not to lease Beckingham Hall back to us as he has a relative that is into fishing and is going to run it as a six man syndicate.

We owned all of the fish in Beckingham Hall and were able to remove a number of fish when our lease was terminated.  137 carp were removed and 102 went into Totham Pit, 18 into Slough House West and 17 into Slough House Farm along with 25lb+ of silvers to Slough House West.

Totham Pit work party & siltex application on Sunday 29th October

Brilliant effort by everybody today at the work party, well done to Deano & his team for putting this all together with a great work plan for the pit initially and a great work party today to get the ball rolling, the head count was 23 which made it possible to make relatively short work of the jobs at the top of Deans list of works to be carried out, as well as 4 tonnes of siltex being introduced today making it a very productive day indeed, many thanks to everyone that got involved, Happy Angling! long live the pit - Jamie

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.
