Snakes alive at Bog Grove

I have received reports that there have been several  snakes, possibly  adders, very active at Bog Grove doing the breast stroke? Adders are dangerous so please do not attempt to scoop them up in your landing net, catch them on floaters or weigh them in at matches (they don’t count) – Kind Regards – Dave (Balliff).

Slough House Farm carp match result

Another good event this weekend over Slough House , 35 fish landed , kept me busy , it went right to the wire with young Luke Harris having 3 decent fish in the last hour.  He ended up winning with a bag on 88.3lb , Tony Hayden came second with 83.7lb.  Luke went on to draw his own number out of the hat to also win the Aqua Buoyant weigh sling in the prize draw.  Tony Hayden is now leading the race for the Alan Hare cup with a fish of 22lb.

Jamie with Luke Harris, winner of round 2.

Little London car park and track improved

With the addition of Little London to our night permit we have invested in improving the car park and track well in advance of the autumn wet weather.

Both the car park

and access track

have been improved with road planings and we hope to repeat this exercise once again while the weather is still dry.

A big thank you to Paul, George and Jamie for organising this and for their intensive shovelling.

Crucians stocked into New Hall

Our anonymous benefactor is wondering if anyone has caught any of the crucian that we stocked into New Hall yet?  If you have please drop the webmaster a line or to at

“Today Monday 4 May I went to New Hall for a spot of fishing, I was hoping to catch some Crucian Carp! I started in one of my favourite swims and after two hours I had not had a bite!! I moved to a swim next to the large Lilly Pad and I struggled to get bites but managed about half a pound of very small Roach and Rudd but no Crucian’s. I have never had such a bad day at New Hall in the past, always having a good bag of nice size Roach, Rudd and small Bream.  I noticed that someone had been fishing at some time in the first swim by the Lilly pad it would be nice to know what sort of session they had. So I was wondering if by the web people could post their reports of New Hall.” – Anon.

With a big thank you to the anonymous member who donated £500 to us to buy crucian carp for New Hall reservior I am now pleased to confirm that 85 crucian have been introduced to New Hall.  Probably around 30lbs in all – good size fish, the largest about 8oz.

New Hall is closed to fishing for the month of April so these fish will have a month to settle in before fishing resumes on Friday 1st May.

New permanent pegs at Slough House
