Fish Care

Fish care is the most important thing to get right. We spend our time waiting for our prize. Taking care of them once caught is the main priority. Before removing from water make sure your ready, unhooking mat laid out and wet, weight sling out and wet, scales zeroed, camera set up. Once all this has been prepared your then ready to get the fish. When lifting out of water insure it’s fins are ok and not bent back( you wouldn’t like someone bending your arm behind your back) weigh your prize over the unhooking mat, take pictures over the unhooking mat. When returning to the water you must give them time to recover before releasing. It is best to do this in your landing net but hold fish with your hand. Once the fish feels strong enough it will kick off and you will no it’s ok. Barbel are majestic creatures and give there all in the fight so do take sometime to recover this especially applies to them. But it is equally important to take care of every fish no matter what it is or it’s size. If anyone is unsure about fish care please speak to a bailiff or call. Equally if you witness any poor fish care it is important to report it but much better to correct it there and then by educating the Person.
We all want to enjoy this sport for years to come. Fish care will ensure that happens. My number is in your rule book

News Letter

Hi All

We thought we would give you a short up date on recent work parties and the AGM

  • The work parties at Moorlane have been a great success with turnouts, work accomplished and results in water quality, We have cleared all the trees and shrubs from the car park to the lake to allow the wind on the water. This has resulted in the Dissolved Oxygen levels in the water raising from 3.1 to 10.2. 10.2 is a fantastic level and one to be proud of so a big thank you to all work partie attendees. We have built a new bridge on to the island and started to remove the trees from there, This will require another work party to complete, We aim to put 3 or possibly 4 new swims on this island so all areas of the lake are accessible and comfortable to fish.
  • AGM was held on the 15th Feb at Stanwell Village Hall, We had a good attendance, there was no rule changes put forward so all current rules apply, No one stepped down from the committee, or any changes made so the commitee stands. The Clubs accounts were presented and we are still in the black which is always good.
  • We disgussed future stockings at Moorlane and in principal agreed on the type of stocking you our members woulds like. The committee will look at fish prices and availability of fish in view to stock in the autumn.
  • Work Party dates for the River Colne are Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th March at 09:30am, Meeting place Hithermoor car park. Please bring tools for cutting and clearing swims.

Please bring tools for cutting and building swims, Old materials would be very help full like timber, scaffolding poles and fittings etc. Any Future members that are on waiting list or and wanting to join the club are welcome to any work parties, you will be rewarded for your efforts by being allowed to fish any of our lakes 1 week earlier for each work party attended. Members your reward is you are entered in to the club raffle which is drawn at the july club meeting. you get 1 ticket for each work party attended.
