This article aims to provide our members with a summary of the available information about the Koi Herpes Virus in plain English. If you were not at our May General Meeting, the members voted in favour of the Club supporting the release of the Koi Herpes Virus (subject to the Government adequately funding the clean-up of waterways of dead and dying Carp, habitat restoration and restocking of native fish). This article will hopefully reassure members about any concerns they may have about the safety of the Koi Herpes virus.

Outings for 2017 - 2018

The members have now decided on the dates and locations for the next 12 outings for the 2017 - 2018 fishing year. Once again we tried to provide a balance of freshwater (both trout and natives) and saltwater outings to cater for everyone's tastes.

So put the dates in your diary and make sure you put your names down at the general meetings early to ensure a spot for the outings you wish to attend. Also members will be able to register for an outing again shortly through the website by logging into the members area.

Our monthly outings are targeted at the more social side of fishing, with members often sharing accommodation and teaming up to help each other find fish. Whether freshwater or salt, land based or on a boat, there's usually someone to share a day's fishing with. Fish caught throughout the year are eligible for our annual awards, allowing those with a competitive bent to fish when it suits them most.

Listed below are our outing for the fishing year - Members have access to more information about outings, so come along to one of our general meetings to find out more.
