Night fishing at Bog Grove has now started and runs through until the 30th April 2018.

3 rods are now allowed on all venues for all standard night permit and Howells night permit holders as well as for members who have purchased the £30 winter 3 rod upgrade.  Regardless of which night permit you have you can use 3 rods on all venues including Howells.

The sun sets on another summer’s fishing at Rook Hall.

Work party at Totham Pit on Sunday 19th March

Totham Pit will be closed from 8am on Sunday 19th March (not Mothers Day) for a working party.  All members willing to help out should gather by the container at 8am.  Paul is hoping to co-ordinate some extensive trimming up and removal of underwater snags where fish are often lost.  This work is needed prior to an application of Siltex being applied to the lake to improve the water quality before the next batch of carp are stocked.  All help will be gratefully received and members who attend the working party and leave their name with Paul will accrue a 10% discount towards their 2018-19 daytime membership fee.

Part of canal closed on Sun 18th Sep

We have taken a match booking for this Sunday 18th September on the River Chelmer.  The stretches at Boreham Black Bridge, Papermills and Browns Wharf will be closed to non-competitors.  Thanks - Russell.

The next work party will be on Sunday 17th April at Totham Pit

The next work party will be at Totham Pit on Sun 17th Apr starting at 8am (please meet by the container).  The plan (subject to approval from the owner) is to widen the bridge over the outflow to make it suitable for trollies, apply bark chippings and remove branches from the water.  All help you can give will be much appreciated and as this is an organised working party will contribute 10% discount towards your 2017-18 daytime membership fee.  The lake will be closed to fishing while the bankside works are completed.  For more info please contact Paul Kemp on the number listed in the 2016 rulebook.
