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…).

End of Season Workparty

The next workparty will be held at Slough House Farm and Totham Pit on Sunday 28th March.  If you are able to assist in any way, however small, please meet Laurence at the container at Totham Pit at 8am.

Clearing & burning dead & fallen trees on the island 002

This one is bigger Paul!

Paul’s friend Jack Walker wrote: How he managed I don’t know.  Pauls weekend started off with him having the flu and then one night when the whole lake was frozen his rod screams off and after breaking the ice he pulls out a 27lb Common.  What is going on but look at his face it tells a story! It is now my challenge to bet his 27lb record this year again. Now that’s going to be fun. Cheers for reading from Jack Walker.


Cold Water Carping

Paul Kemp proved that if Totham Pit remains ice free long enough to get a bait in the water then the fish are willing to feed.  These are certainly not the largest fish in the lake but a brace of double figure linear Mirrors as part of a four fish catch on an overnight session certainly warmed him up!


Workparty on Sunday 28th February

The next working party will be held on Sunday 28th February.  Please meet up at the Totham Pit container at 8am.  The exact nature of the works to be carried out will be decided on the day but are likely to include some or all of the following dependant upon turnout:

 Totham Pit tidy up and swim trimming.

Bog Grove tidy up and swim trimming (the access track also requires maintenance work and a tree surgeon will deal with the large fallen tree).

Slough House Farm entrance and fence repairs.

 Laurence would like to thank all of the regular attendees at work parties throughout 2009 and looks forward to your continued support in 2010.
