The top 4 weights in fact were all over 100 lb, which is itself another landmark for our little club.

We have to to go out on a limb financially, booking matches at Heronbrook so:-

A Big Thank You! to everyone who attended.

No club match this coming Sunday – next match 16th September at the Willows.


Bridge Pool – Heronbrook


This week we are at Heronbrook on the Bridge pool, which apparently has:-

“Bin’ Fishing it’s Ed Off”


So with fine weather forcast we are hoping for a really good turnout.

Heronbrook is a venue where we have to pay booking deposits and comit to a minimum number of pegs – so if you can possibly make it to this one, it would be very much appreciated.

A particular shout out to anyone that has not fished with us for a while: –

“Don’t be shy – you will be very welcome”

Match Rules Update – Keepnets


With incidences of the KHV Carp Virus arising many fisheries are getting stricter on rules surrounding keepnets.

So that we do not fall foul of this, we have now updated our rules accordingly.

  • Where there are dipping tanks at the fishery – all nets must be dipped (Whether they are dry or not).
  • Nets must be laid out and not put in the water until 10 minutes before the all in.

In order to remind us all, a 10 minute warning will be sounded prior to the “all in” signal.

Horns Pool – WS15 2UW

This weeks venue is Horns Pool which is situated behind the Horns Pub at Slitting Mill (WS15 2UW). Approximately 3 miles further on from Carneys (if you are traveling from the Stafford direction that is)

Horns Inn

The track to the left hand side of the pub, takes you down to the car park by the pool.

Hopefully the wont close the roads again and we will all be able to get there.

See you all there on Sunday
