Deputy Treasurer still required

We are still actively seeking a new Treasurer to take over from Simon when he stands down at the end of this season.  If you would like to find out what the role entails please contact either the Treasurer, Secretary or Chairman on one of their numbers listed in the rulebook.  The sooner we find a deputy the longer he/she will have to shadow our existing Treasurer.  All volunteers from the membership are welcome.

The River Blackwater through Benton Hall Golf Club is NOT a MAS fishery

Following one of our members getting caught fishing the River Blackwater on Benton Hall Golf Club, who was under the false belief that this is one of our river stretches, we can confirm that it isn’t.  Our stretches of the River Blackwater are at Station Road, Wickham Bishops and Wickham Hall in Langford.

Ban on braided line lifted

A good point was raised from the floor of the AGM regarding drop shotting, which is best carried out using braided mainline, and the committee promised to review the rule banning braided mainline at the Feb committee meeting.  As a result of that review the ban has been lifted and braided mainline can now be used across all of our fisheries.  Existing rule 6.3 will not appear in next season’s rulebook.
