Have you found Hugo’s bank stick and rod rest at Little Park?

I have received a heart-felt plea “Do you think it would be sad if you posted a note on the website asking for the return of my favourite bank stick and rod rest? I’ve had both for over 20 years and I’m very sad without them. I left them at Little Park last night Thursday 16th July.  The person who might have picked them up after I left could have been driving an 04 plate silver Mitsubishi 4×4. I’d be fairly certain it was him as he was packing up as I left and half an hour later when I returned bank stick and him were gone……all very sad…….”

If you have Hugo’s favourite bank stick and rod rest please can you return them, no questions asked, to the Membership Secretary who will reunite them with Hugo.  Thank you – Paul.

Dan’s monster bream

Dan Hilton got a surprise while fishing for perch on the canal – “If I’m honest I was very surprised to catch the bream seeing as I was after perch at the time. I actually lost a 2lb+ perch about an hour later, but hey beggars can’t be choosers!!!”

Jamie Smart has smashed the society’s grass carp record with a splendid fish from Heron Hall:

We didn’t even know that there were any grass carp in Heron Hall!

The previous society grass carp record was a fish of around 6lb from Priory Farm in Bicknacre (no longer a society fishery).
