Please treat our biggest asset with care

Members and guests are reminded to treat the fish they catch with the respect they deserve and always use a suitable sized landing net and an unhooking mat.  Current rule (6.9) states that an unhooking mat is only compulsory when fishing for carp and pike but this will change on the 1st April 2017 to try and prevent fish of any species being laid on the ground.  This rule change does not take immediate effect to allow everyone plenty of time to buy a mat that is suitable for both them and the fish they catch.  Please ensure in hot weather that your mat is sufficiently ‘wetted down’ or covered with a wet weigh sling to further protect your catch.

Weeks of effort pay off for Paul at Brick Kiln Pond

Paul Frost wrote: I’m a new member who passes the Brick Kiln Pond as I travel to and from work. I often stop off for a quick scan of the pond to see what’s about and sometimes fish on the way home for a couple of hours.  I usually see a couple of unusual pale colour long slender fish cruising on the surface and finally managed to land one on the 6th June.  I didn’t really recognise the species but Brian at the Halstead tackle shop identifies it as an Albino Grass Carp.  It weighed in at a healthy 13.5lb and certainly put a smile on my face after spending weeks trying to tempt it.

Brian Webber’s mixed bag

This was my second place concessionary match bag from Slough House Farm beaten by an excellent 21lb carp by Jack Morley.

Angry makes Dan happy

Went down Howells for an hour after work and managed to catch ‘mr angry’ at a very fat/big weight of 27lb


Nice one Daniel – proof that short sessions can return big dividends.

Carp in the fog

Howells is fishing well as spring starts to arrive, I had 2 fish last night and lost one.  Both fish where commons one 24lb and the other was 23lb.

Little Park boosted by small Commons from Howells

We had a good day over Howells, the figures are a total of 462lb of small Commons moved to Little Park.  49 Commons totalling 442lb went into Little Parks main lake mostly averaging 10lb, some slightly smaller, and 20lb of small Commons went into the top pond.


Four of the 49 Commons moved from Howells to Little Park main lake.
