The main sessions for 2018 are now finished although the club will be organising some winter sessions from late November and into December for those hardy souls, dates will be up shortly with the aim of the session shown, anyone interested can email on mjdimmock@hotmail.com for further information.

Most other sessions will get going again in the spring keep watching for dates etc.


First sessions have been held  with 3 juniors attending and a varied catch was had with a couple of good bream, roach, dace, perch. bleak and a daddy ruffe turning up only disappointment was being plagued by signal crayfish although these fascinated the juniors.

Saturday 8th July

Second set of sessions held and attended by 13 youngsters and 1 mum with good mixed catches coming in morning but sport tailed off in the afternoon session due to hot weather. These longer sessions are helping to increase youngsters knowledge of angling and hopefully they will be able to get out there and show the adults how it is done.

Latest Update 15th Sept

The main sessions have now finished but we are continuing to run well supported continuation sessions as per the dates above. These sessions are to more thoroughly teach the beginners the different styles and methods of fishing so they can go out on the waters themselves with full confidence in what they are doing.

During the main sessions we have caught roach, rudd, skimmers with a proper bream or two thrown in, perch, (biggest about 3lb,  it made the captors day), daddy ruffe, dace, chub, an odd zander (on single maggot) crayfish and at long last a gudgeon showed up which was very encouraging ( I last saw one about 5 years ago) so all participants have been able to see the various types of fish present in our section of the canal.
