To All Members, this is our matches for the year. As you can see we have worked very hard on this as a club. We have new venues lined up again and have made some changes to the matches. As we have had such an increase in membership I would like to point a few things out regarding our river matches. Most of our river matches have a trophy attached to them; we also run 3 league tables one for rivers one for lakes and one combined. This year we will be having a go at mixing up the river matches trying new areas for our matches.
We have some matches that are highly popular and some not so much. You can fish as many or as little matches as you wish. Most of our lake matches are peg limited so please book in early to avoid disappointment.
All our matches will be advertised the same way, you will have a 2 weeks’ notice to book into a match, and it will close when either all pegs are taken or the Friday before the match.
If you book into a match please can you make sure you attend if you do not attend you will still be required to Honour your pegging fee as we still have to cover the costs of the lakes.
Due to how popular our charity events are we will also be taking names for this event and running a list to make sure everyone who wants to fish gets the chance. You can send me a private message to put your name down onto the list if you are interested in fishing the charity matches. We have been working hard with other clubs and are also hoping to hold a 3 way match with Stoke, Ilminster and Taunton. You will also see by popular demand Andy Downton is running a 4 match series on the K.S.D. all information about each match will be available on the match event when it is put up for you to book into. We look forward to seeing everyone on the banks again. Stay safe tight lines the committee.
