Specimen Angling has ceased trading

Adrian at Specimen Angling, one of our three main agents, has been in touch to let us know the sad news that they have ceased trading and will be vacating the shop in Springfield by the end of the month.

Coming soon – our half price winter ticket

From 1st October the half price winter ticket to fish until the end of the season will again be available. To join please print off this Winter Ticket Application Form 2017-18  follow the instructions and post it off to the membership secretary or take your photos (or old membership card) and payment to JP Tackle or Angling Essentials from Sat 30th Sep where you can join in person and go fishing straight away (a one day bonus this year as the 1st October falls on a Sunday).  Please note that this year a limited number of half price standard night permits upgrades are available (priced £32.50 from the membership secretary and JP Tackle only) and these also allow you to use 3 rods on all venues.  If you bought a £30 winter three rods upgrade earlier in the season you can now upgrade this to a standard night permit for just £2.50 (I only sold five of these so this is a targeted offer!).

For additional info please see the back of the winter ticket application form and the winter ticket poster

The end of the season fast approaches

Just a reminder that all 2016-17 memberships expire at midnight this Friday 31st March.  As requested by the committee renewal forms for 2017-18 have not been automatically posted out to all members this year which has saved the society several hundred pounds on printing and postage which has already been re-invested in fish stocks (more ide have been purchased and stocked into Rook Hall, Slough House West and Heron Hall), Siltex to improve the water quality at Totham Pit and upgraded portaloos for Howells and Slough House Farm.  The renewal form has been emailed to all members who gave us their email address and posted out to anyone who supplied two stamped self addressed envelopes to the membership secretary when they joined.  You can also print off a copy of the renewal form here or from the membership renewal page.  If you do not have access to a printer simply send your membership card, cheque and stamped sae(s) to the membership secretary or take along your card and payment to one of our three agents (JP Tackle, Angling Essentials or Specimen Angling).

Any unsold Howells night permits are now available to members on the waiting list on a first come first serve basis. Availability can be checked on the Night Permits tab above.

Membership prices held

There are no membership fee increases for next season.  If you would like to buy a 2017-18 membership please apply using this Application Form 2017-18 and enclose two photos of every applicant or your existing membership cards if renewing.  The membership secretary will turn applications around within a couple of days.  New memberships are valid from now and members can fish the last three months of the 2016-17 season free of charge.  Standard night permits are also available.  This early joiner offer is available directly from the membership secretary and JP Tackle (daytime and night tickets) and Specimen Angling in Springfield with Angling Essentials following soon.
