News Letter March 2020
Hello to all members of the club we would just like to fill you in on what has been going on over the last few months with the club.
We finished the year of with our fantastic Christmas fayre and trophy presentation, it was good to have a great turn out for this and with our final push we raised £1.000 for our charity. Well done to all who helped with this and very well done to Chris White for running his raffle throughout the year. Also well done to all our winners for trophies over the year full list in new club licence.
We have run a winter league from January until March this has gone down well with our hard core anglers and with some great fishing. We set out to try new areas of our river and try some new waters for our winter matches. We fished Muchelney, Up-stream Parrett works, River Yeo at Longload and Covey fishery. Well done to our winner of the winter league Chris White. Thank you all who supported the Winter League.
The club has started to make progress with getting juniors into fishing. A few members went along to Ilchester scouts group to show the scouts some parts of fishing terminal tackle, bait demonstrations, fish species and habitats and how to put a rod together. This was a great evening and lots of fun was had let us hope we can build on this.
The club has been working hard behind the scenes to get more water for the club. We have managed to get a great agreement with Covey Fishery. Anyone holding an up to date Stoke-Sub-Hamdon club Licence will receive a days fishing on Match Lake ONLY for just £5 a day. When you produce your licence to the bailiff. This can all be seen in our new club card this year.
We have also made an agreement with Yeovil and Sherbourne Angling Club to Share the river and Witcombe bottom main drain at Longload. All areas available to fish are in our new club card (MAPS PROVIDED). Also can be seen from our Website.
We have also been in talks with getting hold of more river at Mudford this is the river Yeo again and with work been done by the committee we are sure that this will be more water for the future. As it stands at the moment we are working with the farmers to agree access points parking and the water we can use, so please keep your eyes peeled for updates on our Facebook page.
To finish off we are about to start our new match calendar for the year where everything is reset and its all to fish for again. Anyone who holds a current club card can fish our club matches so why not give it a go and come have some fun with the boys and girls on a match. Can anyone take the Rose Bowl from James White? Is there anyone who can compete for the Club Championship and beat Chris White? Or what about the rivers can anyone get on top of Clifford Gaylard and win the Memorial Shield.
Tight Lines The Committee.
