Fishing venues open

UPDATE: Friday, June 5th

All of our waters are now open to fish.  However we ask everyone to follow some simple rules to help make fishing safe for us all.  These rules are set out below and follow the guidelines issued by the Angling Trust. 

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.

Wait and See

The Angling Trust have advised that fishing can commence from this Wednesday but more clarification is required on some of our fishing. Hopefully things will become more clearer over the next few days. In the meantime the committee are working behind the scenes to get clarification on certisn areas. If we are allowed to start fishing then members will be allowed to fish the Tyne, Wear, Coquet and Rothley Lake.
