July News update
Due to increasing costs and a trend in membership, the Committee has decided to abolish certain classes of membership. Over the next two years, we will be working towards 2 classes of membership only.
ADULT MEMBERSHIP £80.00 NO JOINING FEE
JUNIORS UNDER 18 £20.00
NO MEMBERSHIP CARDS ON HOLD
Anyone who joins the club in 2019 will automatically pay the Adult membership price of £80.00
This means that O.A.P and disabled memberships will no longer exist anymore. Any member falling into these classes now will increase in two stages of £15.00 per year.
Guest Tickets from 1st January 2019
All Guest tickets will be £7.00 per day.
We are sorry for having to do this but feel if we don’t act now then by 2020 the club will no longer be able to afford all of your waters and will have to let some of them go.
On a good note though, since the £15000 investment of the new fish to the club waters this year. The club has seen a vast improvement to the catches of fish been reported by the members on all of the waters.
Bradley pool opened up in April and although it is fishing hard the water will become popular with our members. Arrangements are in place for more silverfish to be introduced to this water around November time.
Grange pool update
The owner as informed me that work is taking place to sort the situation out. The insurance company as had a company working on sorting the water quality out and as given the go-ahead to say it is ok.
An outlet pipe is to be installed to sort the drainage problems out. Work is then going to be done to sort around the pool, car parking area and driveway.
The owner currently as a claim going on with the insurance company for his fish loss etc, so hopefully this will soon be sorted later on this year.
Despite all the rumors the club as not walked away from this water, I am constantly down there working with the owner to resolve this problem and when it is sorted out we will be opening the water back up.
Dennis Deakin as decided to retire from his role as water maintenance officer due to health reasons. I would like to thank Dennis on behalf of myself and the club for all the hard work he as done for the club and I am sure we will see him knocking about fishing on the waters.

Negotiations are ongoing with a new landowner regarding a new water for the club
Grange Fishery Closed
The owner has rented the adjacent field to a farmer,who has been spreading slurry over the field and due to the winter weather conditions it as got into the pool.I have spent today with the owner,Environment agency and the farmer trying to resolve the problem. The oxygen levels are low and the nitrate levels are high causing stress to the fish. The farmer is hiring pumping equipment to try and get the problem sorted.
The water level is extremely high and the entrance,car park is not accessible.
The pool is closed now until it gets sorted by the owner. Under no circumstances is anyone allowed at this water so please stay away and let the owner get on with sorting this out.
I will keep everyone up to date as and when anything arises.

River Dane Trout 2016
I would love to share this photo with you of a massive 9lb 15oz brown
trout that i caught on the River Dane on fri 15th of july. I was fishing for barbel
on the manor farm stretch with a feeder full of ground bait and a hair rigged worm.
It is by far the biggest trout I have caught and it was really good to see it go back
after a 20 to 30 minute rest in the net. I didn’t catch any barbel by the way but as
you can imagine this fish more than made up for it.
