National Lockdown: No Fishing from January 5th

We regret to inform you that following the imposition of a new national lockdown the Government have taken the decision that fishing in England will not be permitted during this national lockdown period. Consequently we are told by the Angling Trust that individuals should not go fishing from midnight tonight (5th January) and clubs and fisheries should close their waters to anglers until further notice. Further details can be found on the AT website at :





A Happy New Year

To our members new and old and readers of our site we wish you all a happy new year but more importantly a safe year. The committee have as ever been working on renewing our leases for 2021 and things look good so far for the coming season. Our next newsletter will be issued soon and will included the agenda for our AGM to be held on the 3rd February via a zoom meeting. 
For members of the general public looking to join a very well organised and friendly fishing club then we do have some vacancies for the coming season So if you have any questions then just contact us and a relevant committee member will assist you.


Stay Safe

This Christmas

Its been a torrid 9 months for the country with covid but thankfully our members have survived and also had the opportunity to get some fishing done on club waters. Despite a reduced amount of fishing time available to members our catch returns for the season fair well on previous years. Details will be provided at our Zoom AGM meeting in February and members will have a further opportunity to apply to join the meeting when we send out details in our January 2021 newsletter.

On behalf of our president and fellow committee members we wish you and your family as merry a Christmas as possible and hopefully a more normal New Year.

End of Season

Catch Returns

With the season ending in a few days time on the Till could we remind members who have yet to complete their 2020 Catch Return to please send their completed return to the secretary as soon as possible and to arrive no later than Friday December 4th. Thank you.


Annual General Meeting, February 2021

To enable us to have an AGM this year the Committee is planning to hold this on-line using Zoom provided their are sufficient members interested in attending. The provisional date for the AGM is February 3rd, 2021. If you would like to attend could you please email the secretary as soon as possible to register your interest. Thank you.


Bob Booth, Welling Park Trout Farms

I don't know how many of our members knew Bob Booth but he, and Welham Park Trout Farms, have stocked all our still waters for many years. He has done a tremendous job for us and all the other club waters his fish farm has stocked over the years so I am sorry to have to tell you that Bob sadly passed away earlier today.  Bob had been ill for some time but nevertheless it is still a great shock. He will be greatly missed by all in the angling community.
