NEWS - Updated 26th June
PLEASE READ the new rules for both MATCH and PLEASURE fishing
Do not leave home to go fishing if you or any member of your household has any of the symptoms of COVID-19 – follow government advice on isolation.
Weekend Club matches have now resumed as of Sunday June 21st, but are subject to the mandatory new match rules which must be adhered to at all times (updated today : June 26th).
All members will now be responsible for opening and closing gates by using the code contained inside your permit. All gates to be immediately closed once you have passed through.
New revised safety-driven fishing rules are displayed at each lake, and are also available from the "NEW Pleasure Rules" tab on the left side of this News page.
You will of course be required to carry both your Stacey's permit and Environment Agency Fishing Licence, and to display both on request from the bailiffs who will be on site more frequently than previously.
Due to increased interest in the lakes there is now a Waiting List for new club members. Please would all existing members who have not renewed yet let Keith know whether you are planning to fish with us again this season. Keith's details are on the "Contact Us" page of this website.
Whilst weekend club matches have now resumed on our lakes it is likely that weekday matches will not start again until at least the end of August due to the current pressure on the lakes. Apologies to those clubs who had booked weekday matches.
Please remember that keepnets remain banned except for weekend club matches. With the hot weather and dropping water levels, the absence of keepnets will help the fish to remain healthy through the summer.
Support Your Local Tackle Shop - Tadley Angling
Tadley Angling has now re-opened for business. As you will appreciate, it is physically only a small shop so there will have to be social distancing constraints enforced. Socialising will still be discouraged on the premises, and please try to visit outside of busy hours if you are able.
Good Condition Tackle Recycling
If you have any very good condition gear too good to throw away, please bring it along to Tadley Angling or contact Keith. The tackle will either be redistributed to young anglers or sold by the shop in aid of the charity. Quite a few such items have recently been sold by Tadley Angling, which contributed over £300 to this year's charity takings.
