Hurston Lane Re-Opens

We are now in a position to re-open Hurston Lane. It has been a long haul and we apologise to those anglers who have been disappointed by the closure, but we had to make sure that conditions were right before we re-opened.

The water will re-open from 8.30am on Monday 1st December do not try to enter the venue beforehand as you will not be able to. You will notice a few changes when you get there. Firstly and most importantly you will see that we have installed a dip tank and spray facility. These must be used as per the instructions when you enter and leave the fishery. These are restrictions placed upon us by the authorities and without them we would not be able to keep the water open.

There are no exceptions to these rules and if you breach them you will lose your membership.

Whilst the water has been closed our fishery management team have worked on the first stage of getting more air onto the water to create a bit more movement / ripple. This helps with the oxygenation of the water.

We also have a catch book at the venue and it would be really helpful if you could fill this in to let us know about your session.

Rother Barbel Record Smashed
Copyright Petworth and Bognor Angling Club West Sussex

New member Ian Duffy is really enjoying his first season on our club waters, and little wonder, having previously broken his PB Barbel record with a 14lb 1oz fish on the Rother in October he has certainly been putting in some hours on the bank since.

Today those hours of dedication really paid off as he absolutely smashed his PB by landing the incredible 18lb 9oz specimen above, again on the Rother. The fish put up an incredible fight and Ian was staggered by the size and weight of the fish when it was netted and witnessed by a fellow club member.

Not only has Ians magnificent specimen broken the Rother Barbel record it also beats the biggest taken by a club member from the River Arun by 3oz.
