There is a link on our website to then complete the purchase of your night card.

Where possible we ask that you make a note on your application form of your online order number as this will speed up the process for us.

Please note that unless we have both the online purchase and application form with a photo ID your night card will not be produced and you will not be permitted to fish.

Night cards will be sent out in the post and there is to be no night fishing until your photo ID card arrives.

I'll be opening up the sales section after 8pm.

*LEG 'O MUTTON UPDATE*

Following the closure of the legger, the EA have conducted regular testing and we have had confirmation that the water body is now below the threshold for Blue Green Algae.

The Legger will reopen tomorrow morning, but anglers must adhere to some new club rules regarding the water. Any anglers found breaching these rules, will be asked to leave and will result in the loss of membership. These rules are here for the benefit of the water and will be reviewed on an annual basis.

Leg ' Mutton rule changes;

FREEZER BAITS ONLY – THE USE OF SHELF-LIFE BAITS ARE NOW BANNED, STABILISED BAITS MAY BE USED ON THE HAIR ONLY.

NO SPOMBING, SPODDING OR HEAVY BAITING.

AS ALWAYS HAS BEEN, THE LEGGER WILL REMAIN A TWO-ROD WATER.
👌

In recent years the night stamp has allowed members to fish both Carr Mill Dam and The Burgy Pond in the hours of darkness, but after some hard work from the committee we can now announce to you some new waters which will come with night fishing. These waters have now been added to St Helens Angling Associations already extensive portfolio and your new night membership will allow you to fish all of them during the hours of darkness, please see below the club rules on each water.

The Clegg

The Clegg will be a three-rod water, but we ask that members are mindful and respectful of the space they are using when other anglers are coming onto the bank to fish.

Taylor Park

Taylor Park will be a three-rod water and we ask that members do not fish along the wall on the footpath running anti clockwise from the Moxon St entrance. Anglers are also asked to be mindful of nesting birds from April to September and to stay five metres clear of any areas where birds may be nesting.

Leg ‘O Mutton Dam and The Paddock

Leg ‘O Mutton Dam and The Paddock will be two-rod waters and anglers are asked to be mindful of the houses opposite when fishing at night regarding The Paddock, with noise levels and disturbance to the residents close by. Given the size of each of these waters the club has devised a separate set of rulings concerning them both.

· 24 HOUR SESSIONS ONLY – Anglers must vacate the water after 24 hours fishing to free up the water for other members.

· FREEZER BAITS ONLY – Given the recent issues with the Leg ‘O Mutton Dam, the club have decided the use of shelf-life baits is to be banned on both waters. STABILISED BAITS MAY BE USED ON THE HAIR ONLY.

· NO HEAVY BAITING, INCLUDING SPOMBING AND SPODDING – Given the recent issues regarding Blue – Green Algae, the club have decided this approach will benefit the water and we ask that members respect this decision.

· These rules will be reviewed on an annual basis, dependent on any improvement and committee approval.

Colliers Moss

Colliers Moss will be a three-rod water and will follow the club’s general rulings regarding night fishing.

Monastery Dam

Monastery Dam will be a two-rod water and will follow the club’s general rulings regarding night fishing and anglers are reminded of the houses opposite with regards to noise levels and disturbance.

The Burgy Pond (Leech Pit)

The Burgy Pond will be a three-rod water and anglers are reminded of the no fishing areas along the high bank and underneath the power lines, along with fishing directly into snags in the bay behind the community centre situated on Chain Lane.

Carr Mill Dam

Carr Mill Dam is a three-rod water and will follow the general rulings regards night fishing, the club hosts two club matches per week and anglers are reminded of this.

· Monday club matches take place each week and anglers will be pegged around. The match organizer may come around to enquire about the length of your session and where possible, may ask if you will be leaving in the case of using the peg for the match. Good communication goes a long way and will benefit all anglers, respectively.

· Sunday Club matches will take place every week and anglers will need to vacate the chosen match pegs for 8.30am the morning of the match. There will be posts on the Facebook group pages 48 hours in advance and where possible, signs will be placed around the various entrances around the dam. Understand that this will be a weekly theme and that it is the members duty to be aware that they may need to vacate. Again, good communication is all that is needed and a simple post on the Facebook chat group before planning your trip will clarify any confusion. Should a post be missed or unseen these matches will be taking place. We all want to fish and must make the best of what we have. Dave Rigby is very approachable and where possible will try to avoid anyone fishing from the night before when pegging a match. The Feeder Masters events will follow the same process as the Sunday matches, but the matches will also take place on the Saturday as a two-day event and will also be posted over the Facebook pages prior

.

Club Rules

· All anglers are asked to pay attention to the club rules, to section 7 found on page three of this year's St Helens Angling Association members permit.

· A suitable, well-padded unhooking mat to be used when specimen fishing.

· A 42” landing net to be used when specimen fishing.

· A good carp care kit for cleaning of damaged or lifted scales and hook holds.

· The none retaining of fish for any period.

· The use of bait boats is banned on all waters.

· Members must be mindful and respectful of each other on the bank.

· No wading on any of the club’s waters apart from Carr Mill Dam and the Burgy Pond.

· Anglers duty regarding the removal of litter and the disposal of any human waste appropriately when toileting outside.

· Fires are strictly forbidden on all club waters.

· No removal of any plants, trees and fauna or creating of new pegs without seeking full permission from the committee or local club bailiff.

· Members must not spread lines from the boundaries of their swims in the event of other members arriving further up the bank.

· Members must be respectful of the bankside rangers; their decision is final. The guys are there for your benefit to ensure the smooth running of day-to-day fishing and all members must follow their advice in doing so.

ST HELENS ANGLING ASSOCIATION WILL NOT TOLERATE ANY THREATS OR ABUSE TO ITS MEMBERS OR CLUB OFFICIALS. ANY MEMBER FOUND IN BREACH OF THIS RULE WILL SIMPLY BE EXPELLED FROM THE CLUB WITH NO CHANCE OF APPEAL AND WHERE NECESSARY, CONTACT THE POLICE RURAL CRIMES OFFICER. ITS THAT SIMPLE, ITS UPTO US AS MEMBERS TO LEAD EACH OTHER BY EXAMPLE AND THE CLUB WILL NOT HESITATE TO CONFISCATE PERMITS AND NIGHT CARDS WHERE NEEDED.
