Notice to be BAA members – Fish Spawning

Notice to be BAA members – Fish Spawning

Will members please note that all BAA fisheries will remain

closed until the 1st June 2020 to allow for the fish to complete

spawning.

Whilst it is fully appreciated that everyone wants to get back to

fishing, the safety of the very valuable stock in the fisheries

must take precedence.

Hunstrete still remains off limits until reopened.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated in this matter.

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM BAA MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE PEST CONTROL AT HUNSTRETE

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM BAA MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

PEST CONTROL AT HUNSTRETE

 Bathampton AA will be commencing use of rope bangers, which will be timed to go off at set intervals and will be used during early hours of light or when necessary.

 This may cause some disturbance to members but it is a necessary part of pest control as an alternative to culling.

TICKETS FOR HUNSTRETE

TICKETS FOR HUNSTRETE

It has come to attention of the committee that some members are arriving for late sessions and not putting tickets in the box as expected.

If more evidence of this practice is found then the old system of dated tickets for specific days may be reinstated.

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE BAA COMMITTEE NEWTON PARK – UPPER LAKE

ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE BAA COMMITTEE

NEWTON PARK – UPPER LAKE

 

It has been brought to the attention of the committee by the administrators at Bath Spa College that fishing activities have been taking place at the UPPER lake.

BAA members do not have permission to fish this lake and any member fishing there will be deemed to be poaching and as such bringing the name of the Association into disrepute.

If apprehended, membership of the Association will cease immediately for the individual(s) pending a tribunal by the Association and the most likely outcome will be a life ban from the Association.

The administrators at the college will also be within their rights to pursue prosecution against any individual fishing the Upper Lake and security staff have been made aware of the situation and

will be vigilant in curtailing this illegality.

DAY TICKETS

DAY TICKETS

The committee discussed the need for dating day tickets and it was considered

only necessary to have the year on them.

This is much fairer to the member who has paid for a days fishing 

but may lose it once a new month is entered.

Tickets will not be valid from one year to the next so 2019 tickets run out at the 

end of 2019.

NOTIFICATION TO BAA MEMBERS FISHING AT HUNSTRETE.  Dated 23/4/2018

 

NOTIFICATION TO BAA MEMBERS FISHING AT HUNSTRETE.

 

Due to abuse of the current arrangement of allowing members to purchase

multiple undated day tickets, the BAA committee has decided that day tickets will

be deposited in a collection box on entry to the complex prior to proceeding to a peg.

 This new arrangement will come into effect within the next week or so and

relevant signs will direct members regarding this arrangement when in effect.

 Anyone found fishing without having deposited a ticket into the box will be

deemed to not have a valid ticket and may face disciplinary action likely to

result in a ban.

If further problems are encountered then the previous arrangement of only being able to purchase specifically dated day ticket will be reintroduced.
