Dear Fly Fishers,
An update on the brook.
Memberships and season permits are available now for the 2018 trout season.
Membership £40 or £20 for 65’s+. Box Brook Season permit £35. Total being £75 or £55.
Apply to Adrian Wallace 53, Edgeworth Road, Kingsway, Bath. BA2 2LT and please include stamped self addressed envelope for return.
Cheques payable to ‘ Bathampton AA’. Where m/ship has been purchased from a tackle shop write the m/ship card number on the back of the cheque.
Prize winners in the December ‘catch return’ draw for free 2018 permits were Derek Hull, Shane Spiers, and Nick Jeffrey.
Catch data and feedback on 2017 season is very sparse at the moment with 19 members responding from 42 possible.
Thanks go to the few volunteer stalwarts led by Nick Maggs who formed the main effort at the monthly maintenance sessions. It must be evident to all who fish the brook that so much potential improvement in the fishing and habitat lies under the extensive bankside overgrowth but for the want of a boost in volunteer numbers.
I will update 2017 catches later on if more info is reported.
A Happy New Year to all and tight lines,
