INFORMATION NOTICE FOR BAA MEMBERS. RIG CHECKS

INFORMATION NOTICE FOR BAA MEMBERS.

Members are reminded that barbed and micro-barbed hooks

are not permitted to be used on lakes under BAA control.

Bailiffs will perform ad-hoc checks on rigs to enforce this rule.

ANY member found using prohibited hooks will be asked to

surrender their membership and be issued with a “producer”

and asked to leave the fishery and membership is suspended.

A disciplinary hearing will take place and the member may

attend.

The member loses BAA membership rights and may not attend

fisheries during the period of being suspended.

It is extremely likely that the result of the hearing will be a

ban.

WITHY POOL CLOSED 16.8.2017

 INFORMATION NOTICE FOR BAA MEMBERS REGARDING TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF    WITHY POOL

As a precaution, it was decided to close Withy Pool for the time being as some carp had been seen to have red spots externally.

On advice from CEFAS we will continue to monitor the situation but closure is likely to last at least two weeks.

During this time BAA officials may be seen fishing at Withy Pool to allow for sample viewing of carp as advised by CEFAS.

Due to the sudden arrival of the situation, the match on Bridge Pool on Thursday 17th August will go ahead as scheduled but future matches may be postponed.

BAA apologises for any inconvenience to members but it is paramount that the wellbeing of the stock is maintained.

Members will be informed of any further updates and information when known

OVER 55S AND DISABLED SILVERS ONLY MATCH RESULT HELD ON

BRIDGE POOL THURSDAY 3RD AUGUST 2017

The latest round of the over 55 and disabled match series has taken place on Bridge Pool. A windy but dry day greeted the 20 anglers that took part this week which would make presentation difficult for anglers using the pole. Weights were a little bit down on the previous match this could be due to heavy cold rain the day before the match. Although fishing was a little slower there were still lots of fish caught and coming out on top this week was Alan Jones with a weight of 21lb 06oz from peg 16. Alan caught on worm over ground bait laced with chopped worm and casters at around 9 metres.
