Day Breaming

Two anglers shared a 28 bream haul at Totham Pit on Sunday.  We don’t have any photos of that haul but the Membership Secretary turned up late in the day to land his first 7lb+ bream from the venue.  He takes up the story……

I arrived at Totham Pit late afternoon before the rain set in to find 5 cars in the car park.  I love the shallows at this time of the year but the previous Sunday the resident pair of swans had made my attempts to fish a three foot deep swim almost impossible so I opted for the deeper margins of the wooded bank.  My peperami over groundbait approach only brought one bite but it was a 7lb 4oz bream.  This is my third MAS 7lb+ bream, the others coming from Whitehouse Farm (7lb 10oz) in April and my PB 7lb 13oz from Slough House Farm last year.  I know that Little Park and Little London have both produced 7lb+ bream in the past so I could yet increase my tally.

Rubbish and Three Rods?

Members are reminded to take their litter home after a spate of black bin bags stuffed with rubbish have been found at Totham Pit.  Members caught leaving litter will receive a life ban.  New night permit members are also reminded that the use of more than 2 rods is only permitted between 1 Oct and 31 Mar (rule 38).  If anyone is caught using 3 or more rods between 1 Apr and 30 Sep and reported to the committee they will receive a written warning, possible suspension and lose their night permit.

Carp Match 22nd-23rd May

The next carp match will be on the weekend of 22nd/23rd May at Totham Pit.  This is not the 2009 final as stated on page 39 of the rulebook but the first of the 2010 series and all are welcome.  Remember you must be a member but do NOT need a night permit to fish these 24 hour matches.  Please contact Pete Newell for more info.

2009 carp match final winner Rob Smith – will he successfully defend his title this season?

Single Night Tickets Scrapped

At the committee meeting on Wed 5th May it was agreed to stop selling £10 one off night tickets with immediate effect.  Night fishing at Totham Pit, Howells, Slough House Farm and Beckingham Hall is now strictly for full season night permit holders only.

2009 Carp Match Final now on Howells

Contrary to an earlier post the Carp Match Final 2009 will now be held at Howells on the weekend of 24th/25th April 2010.  Please contact Pete for further info.  Unless you have qualified for the final you will not be allowed to fish Howells from 10am on Sat 24th April 2010.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Workparty update

Laurence would like to thank Tom Howlett, Jack Childs, Carl Harris, Pete Newell and Paul Kemp for all their help at the Totham Pit work party on Sun 28th March where a very successful tree trimming exercise was undertaken.

The next workparty will be held on Sun 25th April at Slough House Farm to clear swims, carry out general maintenance and cut the weed wire to length.  Please meet (as usual) at the Totham Pit container at 8am (we appreciate that this date coincides with the carp match final at Totham Pit but not everyone was fortunate enough to qualify…).
