Memberships are now available for the new season.
Members have been emailed today, Friday 12 February, a Newsletter and application form. Please check your Inbox. Those without an email had their newsletter posted on Wednesday 10th.
The Newsletter provides information about a number of rule changes. In particular please note the ban on micro seed particle feed and removal of the winter three rod rule for Silver End Back Pit.
Applicants, both rejoining and new, need to be aware that there is a limit on the total membership and on Night Permits on a first come first serve basis.
Existing members who require a Night Permit should apply by the end of March when night permits applications will be then opened to new members if the night permit limit has not been reached. New members will, therefore, not be able to apply for any remaining night permits until after the 1 April. They may wish to join and apply for a Night Permit upgrade on the 1 April assuming some are still available.
Anglers are advised that night fishing is deemed by the Committee to be between 6 pm and 6 am and is, of course, banned at the present time under the current lockdown restrictions. The latest guidance from the Angling trust indicates that this ban might be lifted on the 29 March. https://anglingtrust.net/covid-19/
