Just a quick note to say thanks to the member who left a carp chair at Badger's Wood, with a note to say that it needed a new home. The club will make sure it goes to someone who'll make good use of it. Many thanks!

We've received guidance from the Angling Trust on what is and isn't allowed during lockdown - and it's mainly good news.
Good News. Fishing is permitted under the "Rule of Two."
Bad News - Match Fishing is prohibited under law so there will be no further club matches until further notice.
Good News. Work parties and other voluntary activities are allowed so the Mega Strim will go ahead as planned.
Find out more from the Angling Trust.

The owner of Wildings Lakes has informed the club that he is locking the top gate because the track is getting rutted due to the rain. Until further notice, members should please park in the top car park and walk down. Many thanks.
