Annual Outing Arrangements

The annual outing is at The Old Hough.  The tackle van will be at the Unicorn car park on Friday 21/07 between 6:00pm and 7:30pm.  Please can all anglers who require this facility please meet here to load their tackle onto the van.

On Saturday 22/07 the mini bus is scheduled to leave at 7:00am.  Breakfasts have been arranged at a local Wetherspoons where the draw will take place.  Then hopefully a full day of action packed fishing.  Followed up with a few pints at various pubs on the way back to Dawley.

This year we want at least one group photo to add to the site!

Breakfast at Monkhall

The on-site cafe, which serves hot food, hot and cold drinks, will open for our match tomorrow if we get there early enough. Don’t forget the draw time is 11am. Read more of this post

No Wet Nets

Please can everyone fishing the next match at Aston Eyre 6th May, ensure that all keep nets and landing nets are dry.  All nets will be checked before the draw.

All members text Trev with your votes for Sports person of the year and Most Improved angler of the year as soon as possible.

Everybody who has trophies please return them as soon as possible.  This will allow time for the trophies to be engraved before the presentation night, which will be held at the Unicorn, Little Dawley on Friday 18th, November starting at 19:30.  Please feel free to donate prizes for the raffle.

No Golden peg was drawn at this match.

There were plenty of double figure carp caught at Aston Eyre, during the match there were a possible 4 lumps vying to beat the 15-04 largest fish that was currently winning with 3 anglers sharing the spoils.  Well finally, to save a fish off in the pub car park Guy Jones landed a 16-0-0 lump to take that title for this year.

We’re not fishing here ever!

The Telford Journal strikes again, just to reassure you all this is not a match fixture change, and who came second in our last match?

Club Rules Additions

For the attention of all club members, following the decisions voted FOR at the AGM earlier this year, two rule additions have been made to the Club rules.  Brian you might have to add these to your personal rule book we hear so much about.

Important Reminder!

Trev has asked me to remind all members that they MUST let a committee member know if they are not able to fish a match (see rule 19 & 20).  Otherwise you will still have to pay your peg fees for the matches missed.  It also allows us to invite guests to fish and make up the numbers, and offset the costs.
