KHV Outbreak

Category : Club News

 

There is a KHV outbreak in the local area, so if you are visiting any of the club waters (London Colney, Lowbell and especially Shepherds Way) please make sure you air dry your landing nets and keep nets before going fishing, this is very important as it could wipe out all the carp in a water.

An Appeal

Category : Club News

At the Barnet & District A .C. AGM on Wednesday 1st April 2015, the current Secretary, Chairman & Treasurer gave two years notice to say that they would be standing down from these positions, this means that they will no longer be running the club as from next year’s AGM which will be on Wednesday 4th April 2018, as yet we have not had anyone coming forward to take up these positions, therefore this appeal is going out to the membership to see if there is anyone out there that may be interested in helping to run the club (full and ongoing support will be given to anyone interested from the current officers).

 

If anyone can help with the above, or knows of anyone else who might be interested, please e-mail barnet.angling@btinternet.com with details.

 

Regards, Dave Porter, Dave & Christine Ruddle

Results of Jack’s over 60’s Match

Category : Club News

Jack’s match 4th July, Neate’s Lake Shepherds Way

 

Twenty members turned up to fish the match, with ages ranging from 60 to 85. All in all a successful day with the majority of those present caching and in many cases losing good fish.

Bert Balbi won the day with 51lb 6oz, (2nd) was Dave Aris with 28lb 15oz, (3rd) Ray Mouratsing with 23lb 4oz and (4th) was Roy Cannon the most senior angler on the day with 22lb 6oz.  Apart from Ray the best weights came from the far side of the lake, pegs 20 to 26.

12 weighed in for a total weight of 203lb 11oz.

We are aware that Carp are the predominant species in the lake but it was nice to see that a good number of Bream and decent Roach were caught.

Floating Islands

Floating Islands at Shepherds Way

If you visit Shepherds Way, you will see that the Club has introduced 2 floating Islands. These have been supplied by the Environment Agency at no cost to the Club whatsoever and our thanks must be passed on to (Rob Pearson EA Officer) and his team for their assistance in getting them onto the lake.

The reason for introducing them is to allow some refuge for fish against predatation from Cormorant’s.   Many of you will be aware that we have applied for a licence to cull and by introducing these we hope to strengthen our application to Natural England, especially as the problem is still ongoing and we are losing fish.   The Islands have a cage underneath them but it does not go to the lake bed and this allows larger fish access from underneath and smaller fish through the wires.  They are anchored to the bottom via two ropes with heavy weights attached and have coconut matting with grass and aquatic seed that will hopefully grow up enhancing their appearance, the chicken wire is to prevent birds nesting.

We strongly recommend that you do not cast directly to the islands as you are likely to get snagged.

We would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

Windmills at Shepherds Way

Category : Club News

Photo below of one of the two windmills that have been erected at Shepherds Way, one on Neate’s Lake and the other on the Small lake. These turbines/windmills have been installed on the two lakes at Shepherds Way to build up the oxygen levels in both lakes, therefore we should not need to use the generators/aerators anymore, we will however still keep the generators/aerators on site as a back-up, just in case they are needed.

Open Day at Shepherds Way

Category : Club News

The open day at Shepherds Way went off very well, with many current members renewing their membership for the coming season, at times it was very busy and we have never seen the car park so full. Several new members joined on the day and quite a few others took forms away with them and we hope to hear back from them within the week.

Many thanks to all who helped make this a successful day, the BBQ was a great hit with everybody and the youngsters had a good day catching plenty of fish.
