Current Government restrictions present difficulties for members renewing their membership. It has therefore been decided to extend current memberships to now expire on April 30th 2021.
We will resume night fishing on Buckshole, Harmers Pond and Wishingtree once the lockdown is over and we have permission to do so check Facebook page or the club website. PLEASE NOTE IT MAY WELL NOT BE UNTIL A FEW DAYS AFTER LOCKDOWN IS LIFTED THAT THIS RESUMES.
New members (only) wishing to join the club can do so by using the postal service or doing a click and collect at a local tackle shop. There is no need for any current member to rejoin until tackle shops re-open as the Government plan on the 12th April 2021. Alan at AR tackle is more than happy to deal with any queries about any of the above if you give him a call. Thanks for reading stay safe and tight lines to all our members.

There will be interruptions to anyone fishing there,you may be asked to move because of the work,please obey any request to move without complaining,the work is being done for the benefit of all members,you could even lend a hand.Thanking you all for your cooperation.

Just a reminder that Buckshole will be closed on Sunday 29/9/19, all day from 7am until 6pm for a match there, all the swims will be in use. Furthermore, we will also be closing the double swim on the roadside due to the number of anglers taking part, if for any reason it's not wanted we will open it to other anglers, but be warned it's closed unless we say otherwise. Also anglers fishing the match will need two keepnets, one for carp one for silvers .

New sign for end swim on vale road side explaining Day fishing only .
Disabled swim signs explaining rules for able bodied anglers if fishing this swim .
If the rules are broken by any anglers you will be banned .
This swim will be lost and only disabled anglers will ever be able to fish it .
An agreement was made with the council that a compromise to allow able bodied anglers to fish this swim ie when the lake is busy /due to cliff swims not being completed as expected was reached .
Please only fish within the rules and vacate swim with no confrontation if asked to do so by a baliff /committee member .
Thank you for your cooperation on this issue
