We are writing to all Angling Trust member clubs with important information about your club’s insurance.
We have been advised by Jelf Insurance Brokers that the cover provided under the Sportscover Sports Liability Policy in as far as it applies to individual members of Angling Trust member clubs and syndicates, covers your members only when they are engaged in activities connected with the member club or syndicate. This limitation is specifically referred to in clause 15.2 on page 5 of the Sports Liability policy document.
We would respectfully ask that your club committee or syndicate leader takes action to ensure that your members are aware of this limitation to the cover. Individual anglers who wish to ensure that they have the benefit of public liability insurance for all their angling activities worldwide, whether connected with a member club or not, can join the Angling Trust as an individual member and receive this cover as an automatic benefit of membership.
We will be writing to you again soon to introduce an exciting new initiative to help us grow Angling Trust individual membership and benefit you, our member clubs, as part of that recruitment process. We also expect to be in touch with news of a great new membership benefit for individual members.
We’ve also been addressing the new Data Protection regulations (GDPR) coming into force in May 2018 and we’ll be writing to all member clubs with advice to help you make sure you can be compliant with the new requirements.
We’ll be sending these communications to all clubs through the post, so please make sure we have correct contact details for your club or syndicate and let us know promptly if any changes are required.
New bailiffs for Shepherds Way Roger Manser on the left and Mark Saunders on the right, please note these two bailiffs replace Trevor Williams who has stood down as bailiff for Shepherds Way.
Please remember when asked to show your membership card they are only doing their job for the club, also you should always have your membership card on you at all times when fishing our club waters, so there should be no excuse for not showing your card when asked.
I caught this carp at Shepherds Way on 9/4/17. My tackle was 5lb mainline with 3.6lb hook line on a size 16 hook, i hooked the carp in its bottom lip. The bait was 1 piece of tiny corn and a maggot, it took 15 minutes to land due to me worrying about line snapping.
For a fairly new angler I was very pleased with myself.
The carp weighed 15lb
Wally Spooner fished the peg next to the promontory with the windmill in the main lake. Tackle was 12 hook, hair rig with small feeder, carp rod behind alarms. Bait 2 6mm pellets halibut and robin red. Feeder had pellets plus ground bait. Fished 12.00 to 3.30pm, caught 5 carp, between 8 and 14lb, 4 commons 1 mirror all in good condition, fought well. Fishery peaceful, red kite orbiting overhead.
