Night Fishing Suspended at West Marsh.

West Marsh

Night fishing is suspended with immediate effect until further notice.This is due to recent issues which has led the fishery owner to believe he cannot  safely police night activity or fish welfare.We have to respect and support the request until issues are resolved, a number of which appears to be due to an influx of new members using inadequate tackle, respect for the fishery and judging by the dead fish and rods lost in the water a lack of angling ability. I appreciate this will disappoint regular members .

Please bare with us.

Clive Boulton. Chairman.

These are some guide lines that we as a responsible club require all to do if we are to keep our fisheries open.

Firstly the toilets are locked up at Yaddlethorpe.

We would advise people to sanitise there hands whilst unlocking and locking at our venues which are padlocked and also do the same on the pin screen at Yaddlethorpe.

Please observe the government ruling on social distances which will include visiting each other at your pegs and please no gatherings .

Ensure no double peggings  are used  and keep the distance ruling between each peg.

We are trying to ensure everybody is in a safe and clean environment so please follow the guide lines we are implementing on our fisheries.

We will continually monitor and update on any further changes required.

This is in the club and your interests.
