ATTENTION NIGHT PERMIT HOLDERS
In light of complaints from members about some waters being ‘apparently’ fully booked but when checked by bailiffs some members have neither turned up or cancelled their bookings.
The Committee view this as seriously as they do members fishing without booking on.
At last nights monthly meeting it was decided in the interests of fair play to all.
For a trial period...
Members must be on the water they have booked before 9pm on the night in question
From now on until further notice don’t book on unless you are definitely intending to turn up.
If you have to cancel your booking it must be before 4 pm on the day at the latest to allow other members on a reserve list to be offered the place.
Failure to turn up or cancel and comply with these conditions will result in a months suspension of your night fishing.

Just a reminder to all members please note that if you are on any of our private waters whether you are just having a wander around fish spotting or fishing maksure you have your paid up membership card with you. If not you will most certainly be asked to leave by the bailiffs.
It is a members responsibility to produce the card if requested and it's the bailiffs responsibility to keep the waters private for members. If you can't produce your card please don't complain when told to leave the bailiffs are volunteers which the club values. Please don't make their job more difficult this is their only means of knowing who is or is not a member. If you can't produce your card please leave when requested to do so.
Night permit holders please be aware that the bailiff teams are stepping up night patrols in order to combat illegal fishing on our waters and possible theft of your fish and fishing rights. Please have your membership card including night permit stamp handy for them to check in order minimise any disturbance to yourself.
