AGM - Update

All 4 proposed items were passed at the AGM. The Club book has also been re-written for 2014 hopefully making the Club’s rules a lot easier to understand. Please make sure you read the book prior to fishing.

A non-fishing membership will be available from 2014.

Details of this and other changes will be discussed in the member’s only forum.

Watford Lodge / River Sett drains update.

Thanks to everyone who has been involved in reporting of this incident. We have been informed that a temporary cap will be installed ASAP, with a permanent solution to be completed by January.

Water Updates

Although the fishing is tailing off with the colder weather, which sees the majority of anglers hanging up their rods until next spring, work still continues on DNMAC venues.

Today Chris Simpson, Paul Bacon and Ian Gould joined the EA officers at Bowden Lake for a sample netting and water quality tests. The results of these tests together with the invaluable advice of the EA will help us structure our plans for the development of this pictureque fishery.


After the EA visit work was continued at the Strines complex and it was good to see progress being made on this venue.

More details will be available soon and a general update will be given at the AGM.
