''OUR PREMIER FISHERY''

*3rd September Green Lane Work Party*

The attendance for this was a big improvement on the last one held at Heron Pool but there is room for more.  Not a lot of general maintenance has been done recently on this fishery with us concentrating all of our efforts on extending the path around to the back specimen pool that apart from some surface levelling, landscaping and erection of the fence is now mainly all done.  

 

Those who attended strimmed the overgrown areas whilst also tidying up the mess caused by and left by someone unknown around most of the pegs on the front pool. Members are reminded they should not undertake to do any work without first seeking permission of the clubs officers, failure to heed this rule could lead to termination of their membership.

 

Most of the hedges arround the fishery were also cut to improve the overall natural look of the fishery. Thankfully Roy Mills our head bailiff had managed to get down midweek to cut the grass on the paths that saved those on the work party lots of time for which we thank him for.  Lots of other general maintenance work was done to include installing an old gate across one end of the cow drink to stop the farmers cows getting on the new path then burning of what turned to be a lot of debris that one member concentrated on collecting.

 

I will say again, the clubs officials are keeping their promise to improve club assets via stocking of fish whilst also making access to previously difficult pegs much easier with the addition of the new path. So a bit more enthusiasm from more members when we arrange work parties would not go amiss.  We prefer members to volunteer there services rather than having to make rules to force them!  

 

Just before I finnish it would be remiss of me to not offer my sincere thanks on behalf of all who attended for the time Mrs Walker a members wife spent cooking up some welcome bacon butties.

*13th August Heron Pool Work Party*

The attendance for this can only be described as pitiful.  This was the first we have had on this pool for some time with us recently concentrating all of our efforts on extending the path around the back pool at Green Lane.  Sadly going by the few who showed up not many members seem keen on doing anything towards the maintenance of this pool.  

 

Those who attended strimmed and mowed around more pegs including the car park and path. Thankfully much of the work had already been done midweek by Roy Mills our head bailiff with his excellent team of helpers. As a result we finished at Heron Pool early finding time to go to Green Lane to clear the debris from the path extension that needed burning then finishing the mornings work by tidying around many more of the pegs.

 

I will say again, the clubs officials are keeping their promise to improve club assets so a bit more enthusiasm from members would not go amiss.  We do prefer members to volunteer rather than the club having to make rules to force them !

 

Note;  this is done for your benefit and all others who make up the membership.

Tench Stocking

The club is pleased to confirm to the membership that a quantity of Tench has been introduced to our Green Lane fishery on Tuesday 25th April 2017.  These are to boost the existing stocks of this fish.

 

This stocking as members know is in line with the clubs plans to put any  money raised by the club through membership fees back into enhancing this and our other fisheries for members benefit.  

 

These fish are not normally targeted by members but can be a welcome surprise when caught especially at this time of year when they tend to be more active.  Should members catch any in the coming weeks then we would appreciate if they could be returned to the water immediately instead of retaining them in nets.

*24th September Green Lane Work Party*

The attendance for this work party reverted back to what those who regularly attend have become used to which is just 5 showing up made up of 4x committee members and one club officer. Not much in the way of general fishery maintenance had been done recently as reported previously, as a result the fisheries were not looking their best and needed some catch up work that would have been made much easier if more members had volunteered their help?

 

As club secretary I have nothing but praise for those who did attend, overgrown areas were strimmed whilst Roy & Mike with the help of chest waders removed some of bulrushes and other plant growth that was making some pegs difficult to fish from. Most if not all of the pegs are now fishable with no need for anyone to take things into their own hands by cutting down bushes etc without authorisation. Lots of other work was done mainly to improve access by cutting the hedges and strimming the nettles down that were growing alongside the inside of the fence bordering the path. Members are reminded again that they should not undertake to do any work without first seeking permission of the clubs officers, failure to heed this rule could lead to termination of their membership.

 

Most of the work required on Green Lane has now been done other than cutting the grass that would also have been done if it had not been so wet.  Roy & his merry men will I am told at the first opportunity do this one evening given we have few days of dry weather.

 

I will say again, the clubs officials are keeping their promise to improve the clubs fisheries with stocking of fish and improving access to previously difficult pegs with the addition of new paths. So a bit more enthusiasm from the membership would not go amiss.  We prefer members to volunteer rather than having to make rules to force them!  

 

The cook on the day 'Roy' did a wonderful job of rustling up some very nice bacon butties that everyone thoroughly enjoyed for which we express our sincere thanks.
