Dave Porter (aka The Hoarse Whisperer)

It is with deep regret and heart felt sadness, that I announce the passing of another stalwart  member of the Barnet and District Angling Club. He slipped away peacefully surrounded by his family, after that ‘dreadful disease’ reappeared in force, when we all thought the original operation last October had been successful.

For many years Dave was the Club’s Secretary and provided valuable input both of common sense and the ability to swell our coffers at regular intervals through being ‘in touch with people and on the ball’.

His club and match fishing ability was not to be ignored either, in his later years seeming to walk on water pleasure fishing on The River Severn in the Bridgnorth area of Shropshire.

He will be sorely missed.

Shepherds Way

Category : Club News

Dear Member, 

After careful consideration the club has decided to open Shepherds Way on the 26th September 2022 at 0800hrs. 

Whilst the lake’s water volume is still low, the water temperature has reduced significantly, which allows for increased levels of dissolved oxygen. However, we ask you to observe the following;

Limit the amount of bait you put into the lakes.

Take great care when handling fish and always use a suitable mat. 

We will be monitoring the lakes carefully and regular checks will be carried out on how members are fishing. Whilst we believe the current conditions allow the venue to open, if circumstances change, we may have to close them again. Your continued assistance will reduce this possibility.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards 

Paul Hutton

Secretary.

Turnford Consortium

Turnford Angling Consortium (TAC) Announcement

Dear Member,

I have great pleasure informing you that Barnet & District Angling Club has negotiated membership of the Turnford Angling Consortium (TAC). This is great news for our club as membership of the TAC is very limited. One of the criticisms the club receives is that we did not have “Big Carp” waters. This is now addressed. We will be issuing tickets for this fishery as part of the 2021/22 season. There will be an additional charge of £5 per member if you wish to receive a ticket for TAC. We believe this to be very good value. More details will follow and there will be exceptions and limitations.

Turnford Angling Consortium (TAC) is one of the oldest in the Lee Valley area. It was formed by several clubs coming together to jointly manage the Slipe Lane Pits in Wormley, Broxbourne with the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority. The complex is reckoned to be the best fishery in the whole of the Lea Valley area and consists of four mixed fisheries offering something for everyone. Extensive investment in stockings and bank work over the years has been made in the fishery to provide plenty of sport for anglers of all abilities.

Please go to the website for more info. www.turnfordac.co.uk

There are 4 lakes (pits) 

Tickets will be available from 1st May 2021, should you require one, please tick the box on your renewal form & pay the £5.00 fee (this ticket is available to full members only, not associate members)
