Category : Club News

Are you looking for a friendly, welcoming local Angling Club to join?

We will be having our annual open day on Saturday 4th September 2021 at Shepherds Way from 10.00 to 17.00.  This is the opportunity for people who may be interested in fishing to come along and have a go if they wish. It is also an opportunity for members to introduce family or friends into the club.

Past open days has seen a number of new members join up and we are particularly keen to get youngsters along. We will have members demonstrating differing angling methods and the chance to catch a fish or two.

We need people to answer questions and make the odd cup of tea. You may also wish to assist in showing new anglers how to fish. Please feel free to pitch up and help.

Louis with his first ever fish!

Chalking at Shepherds Way

Category : Club News

On Saturday 29th March we treated both lakes at Shepherds Way with Siltex chalk. If done regularly, it will reduce the silt layer and improve the quality of the water. Our Secretary, Paul Hutton, is in the front of the boat assisted by other club members with a team on the bank moving the bags into place. We had a drone filming the process and you can see, from the aerial shot, the chalk dispersing through the water. It was hard work but worthwhile.

A big thanks to all the members that volunteered their help.

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)
