Keep net ban on Pondfield Carp Lake
Keepnets are not allowed on Pondfield Carp Lake apart from matches
To All HADAS members, we are pleased to confirm that after the Angling Trusts earlier announcement, our waters will remain open for fishing, however we ask that you adhere to social distancing guidance given by the Angling Trust, and HANDS FACE SPACE when talking to fellow anglers, COVID-19 is a killer and we want you all to stay safe, thank you for your continued support.
ACCESS TO ALVERSTOKE.
Due to the use of heavy machinery at Alverstoke the track prior to the second gate from the stables is in a very muddy and slippery state, this has been made worse by the inclement weather we are experiencing. You will get stuck. So please if you wish to fish, park at the farm yard and walk your tackle down to the lake.
The Bradshaw’s are not at our disposal for towing vehicle out of the mud.
Tight lines and stay safe.
A Polite Request
It is encouraging to the committee when we have strolled around our fantastic fisheries to see that the majority of our member anglers are now using unhooking mats. The committee would encourage all members to invest in this inexpensive piece of equipment as it is vital to the protection and the wellbeing of our fish stock. The ground is very unforgiving if a fish is accidentally dropped on the ground or placed on stones etc., bruising and unseen internal damage can be caused which can result in fish fatality.
It has also come to notice that some members have very short landing net handles. I must remind you that the club rule states.
12. All anglers should have a landing net. The handle to be a minimum of 8ft long.
Contact with Snowys Bait & Tackle will put you on the right road to add both pieces of tackle to your collection.
