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.

We have some great news for you all. We have stocked both lakes at Moorlane, The front lake has had Approx 500 mixed Tench and Carp and the Back lake has had Approx 200 Tench and Carp + 10 Larger Carp of around 6lb. We still have a lot of work to do over Moorlane so look out for work partys and attend if you can as every little helps.
Hope your looking forward to catching some of these i no i am.

We had 2 very successful work partys on the 3rd and 4th of November. We cut down lots of trees to remove them from the waters edge, this to prevent leaf litter from entering the lake and causing oxygen problems. This work was essential with the up coming stocking program of the lakes. It has had an instant effect allowing wind on the water which in turn has raised the D,O levels, It has also made a lot more accessible for fishing all methods around the front lake. There is still plenty of work to be done on and around the lake so look out for future work party dates and please attend if you can, Remember every work party attended gets you entered in to the raffle with some great prizes on offer each year. Many hands really do make it light work.

Carp Match Results
This match is fished over two 24 hour matches, First at Hithermoor and the second two weeks later at Moorlane long lake. There were 9 Anglers entered on the first leg, Jason Caught the first fish, a common called the long common at 24lb 8oz.
Jason Had a second fish on the Sunday at Hithermoor. Another Common of 16lb 2oz.
This gave Jason a big lead going into the second leg with 40lb 10oz in the pot.
The second match was a real hard slog with the carp not playing ball due to the Angling pressure. Sadly no fish were Landed in the second leg. This resulted in Jason winning.
Silvers match results
This was under tough conditions with an algae bloom covering the Lake. Thank you to all that entered. It was a Bailif clean sweep with the below results.
- Richard Drummie
