2016/17 MATCH LIST REVISED

The Club’s Committee has agreed to a change of venue for the Wednesdaymatches

scheduled to be held during the remainder of the 2016/17 match season.

These will now take place on one of either the Junior, Middle or Top Cisterns;

they will not be held at Heesom’s Pool as was stated on the original 2016/17 Match List.

 Members should note:

That the actual Cistern on which  a match will be held will be decided upon on the day by the

match organiser immediately before the draw time. 

That the draw will take place at 9.30am in the car parking area adjacent to the selected Cistern.

That any members pleasure fishing on the selected Cistern do not have to vacate

the pool; they can continue to fish and the match will be pegged around them by

the match organiser.

That any members who wishes to pleasure fish on a Cistern on which a Wednesday match

has already commenced can do so from any of the pegs left vacant by the competitors.

That, for the remainder of the 2016/17 season, members can pleasure fish on a Wednesday on

on any of the pegs at Heesom’s Pool.

 

A copy of the revised 2016/17 Match List can be copied from this website,

(see the ‘matches’ link on the  website’s home page).

CHANGE TO THE CLUB’S RULES

As a result of a change to the law and on the advice of the Angling Trust the current Rule 7a which reads: ‘

The maximum number of rods for pleasure fishing will be two rods in use at any one time. An Environment Agency Rod Licence is required for all waters..

Has been amended by the Committee with immediate effect and now reads:

7a.1. The maximum number of rods for pleasure fishing will be two rods in use at any one time. An Environment Agency Rod Licence is required for all waters.

7a.2. All anglers on fishing on any of the Club’s waters must be in possession of a valid Environment Agency (EA) licence at all times. All relevant EA bye laws will be observed on Club waters.  Club bailiffs, officials and all other members (on production of their own EA licence and Club membership card) are authorised to check the EA Licence and proof of identity of any angler fishing on any of the Club’s waters.  Failure to provide either could lead to expulsion from the Club.’

NEWS UPDATE

CLOSED SEASON ON THE JUNIOR, MIDDLE & TOP CISTERNS ABOLISHED

 

The closed season that applied to the Cisterns in Anderton Nature Park has now been abolished.

Members can now fish on these waters all year round.

However, the use of keep nets is banned during the period 15th March to 15th June, inclusive.

For a number of years there have been incidents at these fisheries of illegal fishing and non-members lighting fires, having barbecues and drinking during the closed season period. This year things were particularity bad.

As a consequence, a member of the Committee spoke to the Council Head Ranger who is responsible for Anderton Nature Park. The problems were explained and it was requested that the closed season be abolished as this would allow our members to be on the bank all year round and this will deter anti-social behaviour in the area.

The Head Ranger agreed to this request and as his is the authorised representative of the owner of the Cisterns, (Cheshire West & Chester Council), the Club’s Committee was able to abolish immediately the closed season for the Cisterns.

Please be aware that:

The Club’s length of the River Weaver at Anderton, Eden’s Pool and Longton’s Pool are still closed for fishing each year during the period 15th March to 15th June, inclusive.

Fishing is allowed all year on Heesom’s Pool but the use of keep nets is banned during the period 15th March to 15th June, inclusive.

 

Best wishes,

John Morrison

(Secretary).
