Work Party Hurston Lane 19th August
We have an evening work party scheduled for Tuesday 19th August at Hurston. We have a fair amount of tree trimming to do and this is going to generate quite a lot of material to burn. We will also have another go at the weed in the tench pond. If you can spare us a few hours we will be starting at around 5.30pm and going on until about 8.30.

Chris Humphry Memorial Trophy 2014

Outstanding and surprising news!

Not since this trophy was first awarded back in 2011, have I been able to write that a barbel was caught during this fish-in for barbel enthusiasts. What was conceived as an annual event often had to be repeated later in the season in the hope of finding a winner, so often without a result.

However, on this occasion (the eighth time the event has been held) not only was one caught, but a second, too, and both fish captured by the same person. The winning angler was Chris Exall who didn’t take long to ensure that Lynnette Humphry would be able to present the trophy for only the second time. Chris landed his first fish within an hour of the start, and what a fish it was – a new personal best of 15 lbs 15 oz. He was so shocked and excited that he neglected to take a photo, but the fish was witnessed and weighed by Nelson Keet who was fishing nearby. Later in the day Chris had the misfortune to lose a fish, but he made up for this bad luck by catching another before the end – this time a smaller double of 10 lbs 4 oz. Heartiest congratulations to Chris for putting the rest of us to shame and walking away with a well-deserved trophy.

As well as Chris, there were another fifteen of us who fished (see below) including a couple of newcomers. In total £190 was raised for charity, which Lynnette suggested on this occasion should be Prostate Cancer UK, which was unanimously agreed.

River Monitoring on Shopham Riffles
There will be a small team measuring water depths and sediment depths in the Shopham Riffle area on Friday 1st August. This is part of the ongoing Shopham Riffle project and the measurements are designed to assess the state of the river one year on from the installation of the riffle. They will be on site from around 9am to 3pm but It is unlikely that they are going to seriously impede fishing however we would ask anglers to take guidance from the team with regard to where they can fish during the duration of the survey. The team leader has said that if any members of the club would like to see what is happening they are welcome to go along and watch. Apologies for the short notice but we have only just had confirmation.
Many thanks for your co-operation.
