Nice one Dennis

I love Slough House West as its a good winter water and there are some lovely fish in there! Please see enclosed pic of what I’ve called “The Woodcarving Common” as its such a beautiful creature!  I only wish I lived nearer to the MAS waters so I could spend more time on them, but for me its an average 80-100 mile round trip to visit the waters!

Slough House West’s turn for a trim up

We had  a concessionary working party at Slough West Lake last Friday.  Thanks to Roger Smith, Dereck Frost, Dave Harley, Brian Webber, Rob Rowbotham, Keith Leverett and Jack Morley.  We managed to clear the footpath around the lake also totally cleared 23 swims around the lake.  There was a lot of fish activity as well.  There was plenty of tree cutting and lopping done.  It now looks like a proper fishery.  Well done to everyone.

Little Parks turn for a trim up

With a big thank you to Jamie and Ryan the swims and pathway around Little Parks have now been trimmed up as they were getting quite overgrown.

Some more good news is that the gravel hump on the access track where the landowner has laid an irrigation pipe has now been smoothed off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and the leaking dam wall on Little Park Top Lake has been relined with clay and the whole area tidied up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Further trim ups are already underway at Slough House Farm and Totham Pit and others are planned for Slough House West and various sections of the canal.

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.
