Our first reported thirty of 2017

Pleased to say Howells has done its first 30 of the year over the weekend, still 2 months or more until spawning , we should see a few more over that time , most fish that are coming out are over 20lb with a lot of upper 20’s all looking nice.


Rob Kidd with the Common known as Breezeblock at 30lb 6oz.

Hopefully the thirties in Totham Pit and Slough House Farm will now follow suit and put in an appearance soon…

An afternoon session at Slough House West

Welcome to Tails Up Bait

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.

Lots more Howells carp in the gallery

With a big thank you to Jamie there are now several new photos of Howells carp in the gallery from the past year on our most prolific twenties venue.


Just one of several new pictures that can now be found in our gallery .

Totham Pit stocking policy

A few members have asked now that we have a new ten year lease on Totham Pit what our stocking policy is.  Based on previous experience we are proceeding cautiously and with this in mind we have moved two dozen carp from Bog Grove to Totham Pit with the owners consent to monitor how they fare next spring.  If all goes well we have purchased thirty carp averaging low doubles to stock into Totham Pit next autumn.  These are a good strain of fish that have grown to 25lb+ in some of our other waters so hopefully they will do likewise in Totham Pit.
