Continuing Works on the Dig Pit

Works have been now been completed to the Dig Pit to enable anglers to  access to the lake via two entrances to avoid the long walk round if anglers choose to fish the left bank. You can now quire easily walk all the way around with a loaded trolley. Thanks to the volunteers for all there efforts in restoring this lovely little pleasure venue.

Carr Mill Dams Unsung Hero

What would Carr Mill Dam look like without the efforts of the local bailiff Sammy who constantly spend time clearing up other peoples litter , mostly from general members of the public. Here he is again, with another 5 full bags of litter collected from around the Dam. Well Done Sammy.

River Severn Preston Boats and Shelton

Dear Members

For years St Helens Ramblers have held the fishing rights to these 2 stretches of water, and St Helens AA along with other local fishing clubs have had affiliated rights to fish these waters. Unfortunately St Helens Ramblers decided to relinquish the fishing rights to these 2 stretches, and gave the landlord agents official notice. The fishing rights where then put back onto the market, and St Helens AA applied, but unfortunately without success. The fishing rights have been passed over to a local angling club in Shrewsbury. The St Helens AA membership licences where printed in December, prior to us being aware of the situation, therefore the waters are still stipulated within the licence, and  will be removed for the next season.

Carp Lads Clean Out Peg 160

A big thanks to Roy Tickle and Chris Owen who today have been trying to sort out the snag problem on peg 160. Hopefully it’s been sorted now as this big concrete block was removed from 40-50 yards out. We think it’s been used to hold a buoy at some point and broke off, there was lots of line and feeders attached so hopefully the peg will now be clear.

   Thanks again now lads !

Healthy Fish Population at Sidings Lane

 

Dear Members

As part of our on going commitment to our members,  Sidings Lane was netted today in order for the Association to gain an insight into the current fish population of this picturesque little venue. Special thanks goes out to the more than helpful lads from the Environment Agency, who came out and carried out an excellent service, in a professional, organised and friendly manner,  for all their assistance, without whom we would never have got this work carried out. Thanks also to the members of the association who turned up and gave up their own time to assist in this project.

As you will see from the images below, the fish populations are excellent, and in exceptional condition. Its looking good for 2018.
