In the absence of a Fisheries Committee member, some members take it upon themselves to organise fishing outings to nearby fisheries, with other members and fishing friends.

In previous years a small group have been Carp Fly fishing at a nearby Coarse fishing complex. We start in mid summer (when the hot weather makes it difficult for trout fishing) and fish through to early autumn. Last year was the same and a select group met up on two occasions to try our luck (and skill!).

Needless to say one skillful member, who told me that this was his first encounter with Carp on fly, was very successful on both occasions. I think he may be hooked!

I plan to resurrect the Group for this summer and  a list was displayed at the February meeting. It will also be present at the March monthly meeting. Interested members will be contacted nearer the time in the summer.
