Do not leave Tackle unattended A member left his holdall outside his car & then went back to get his basket from the river side of the Carp side, whilst he was doing this a silver van came down the track driving erratically stopping & starting, when he got back to his car his holdall was gone.
Members must not leave their tackle unattended in case this vehicle returns to try the same. I have been the Secretary for above thirty years & it is the first time anything like this has happened. So I ask all members to keep alert. Roger Preston Secretary
Entry to matches run by the Club
As the matches run by the club are getting more popular it is important that all Anglers wishing to fish any match must phone the Secretary to ensure that a place is available on the relevant match. If the match is full & you turn up on the day we will have to turn you away, which we don’t want to do.

All nets and carp nets must be dipped in disinfectant Before and after fishing. It is important that nets are dipped before leaving the fishery to make sure there is no transfer of any disease & the only way anglers can ensure that no diseases are spread to other waters is by dipping the nets & then ensuring they are dry before going on any other fishery.
We must work to guidelines from Cefas for the next few years.
