Head Bailiff:  After many years sevice to the club Dave Cave has decided that now is the time to step down from the role of Head Bailiff and from the committee. We owe Dave a very big "thank you" for all he has done for the club and its members and wish him well for the future. Barry Gibson has agreed to take on the role of Head Bailiff. For those of you who don't know Barry he has been a member of the club for many years and has worked very closely with Dave for many of those years. Filling the vacuum left by Dave was never going to be easy so we are very fortunate to have someone with Barry's knowledge and experience to take on this major role.

Bank Erosion, Dunterley, North Tyne:  Serious bank erosion has taken place over the winter months that has undercut the riverside path through the woods just upstream from the fishing hut at Dunterley. Members are advised to take extreme care on this path and only fish part way down this path when accessing from the road above Peter’s Hole.  Under no circumstances should members try to access the Ridings pool from along this path. Access to the Fishing hut, the Ridings Pool and the water downstream from the Ridings should be via the gate and car parking area (signs on gate) just past Dunterely farm. 
New lock at Fenton: Members fishing the Fenton Beat need to be aware that at the request of the Lambton Estates a combination lock has now been fitted to the car park gate. The combination for this lock is available in the Forum section http://www.fellingflyfishers.co.uk/forum/general/409-new-gate-lock-at-fenton.html or from Barry Gibson or Jim Bumby.

Car Park Badges: To help our bailiffs would members please remember to display their FFFC Car Park badge in their windscreens along with their Membership Number. Thank you.
