Here's a good chance to get a Work Party stamp, giving yourself access to the Club's latest venue for the remainder of the year, a discount in next years membership fee and a bit of exercise and feel good factor
Work Party Wednesday, 13th August 6pm.
It helps us a lot if you let us know that you are coming so we can plan equipment and jobs. Numbers are in the club book.
Disley & New Mills have acquired a stretch of the River Etherow.
The details to fish the river will be available in the Club Book from January but until then the water is available under the following rules.
Fishing is from the right hand bank only. (When looking in a downstream direction)
Directions to the river are available on the forum or by asking at Simpsons Tackle Whaley Bridge (check that Chris, the Club Secretary, is in before visiting!) or by speaking to one of the Committee Members at one of the Club Meetings.
Fishing is only available for 2014 for those with a valid work party pass or those who are exempt.
No Junior Members unless fishing the same peg as an Adult Member or Non Fishing Member.
Night fishing is available with a night syndicate stamp, we would advise not to fish alone at night on the river. Two rods maximum
At the moment this is a coarse only fishery, although the river holds numbers of trout and grayling until further notice there is no fly fishing or wading allowed on this stretch.
Unlike the Goyt and Sett legering is allowed, but no fixed leads.
Anyone fishing for barbel must have an adequate landing net and an unhooking mat.
No keepnets are allowed.
As with all our waters barbless hooks only.
The banks can be steep please take care.
The water contains trout, grayling, chub and barbel plus possibly other coarse fish – let us know what you catch!
This match was held on the canal section of Gawsworth Hall, a venue that is currently being redeveloped.
Although this was a commercial fishery the match fishing was particularly hard for everybody with anglers struggerling for bites throughout the day.
Ben Fowler won a tight competition fishing long pole with corn again the far bank cover to catch small F1 carp and roach.
1st Ben Fowler 3lb 7oz
2nd Aaron Harten 3lb 0oz
3rd Darius Burton 2lb 9oz
Well done to all the lads fishing it wasn't an easy day.
Also a thank you to Morrisons of Chapel for supplying the snacks and drinks
The next Junior day is Tuesday 5th August 9am draw at Watford Lodge so be sure to book on with Chris on 01663 734220
