As of Friday 30th of July one of our team, Gary Dodds, resigned from his bailiffs position. This was formally accepted and duties ended by the fisheries partners on Monday 2nd August.
We continue with our bailiff team to protect our waters. Our security of the fisheries is now currently being reviewed. This includes the addition of new team members, the addition of body cameras for all our bailiffs and increased working activities with the police and fishery enforcement.
We shall in the next few days be adding a contact bailiff area on our website where you can report any information you may see of poaching, litter, pollution etc. This can quickly be forwarded our bailiffs team to respond and investigate.
Our fishery development plans continue to move forwards with 3 new disabled platforms at Mousecroft Pool, further repairs of the Monkmoor lane, new signs for the Reabrook fishery and new pegs at Emstrey.
We shall shortly looking at further developments for next year.
Changes have been added to our permit section of section with respect to permit details. This is to ensure we get full correct address and contact details so that we can send membership cards out to our members.
I can confirm that we have eight new Level one coaches who have recently passed they’re training courses. Well done all. A New section for the Junior Academy is near completion for our website of which will be added in the next few days. It is hoped we can provide two training days in September for our Juniors who wish to learn how to fish. New phases will be added along with the Academy’s progression. Full details will be announced on the launch under the Junior Academy heading.
Night fishing, Litter, Alcohol:
We would remind all full members and day ticket holders to fully read and understand our fisheries rules. They are available via our website and mailed out to our full members with permit cards.
Night fishing and the drinking of alcohol is prohibited. Take your litter home with you. Anglers must respect the environment where they go fishing. We have briefed our bailiffs to remove permits from those anglers who are abusing the fishery rules and forward the details to the management.
As previously mentioned in earlier communications, the fisheries team including myself work hard to provide the fishing facility on a voluntary basis for anglers to enjoy they’re sport. Please respect and look after our fisheries.
Enjoy your fishing.
