Young anglers Guy Clement and Connor Smith had a nice session on the Kenn today (9th July). A small carp put in a surprise appearance.
It is with great sadness that I have to announce the passing of our long serving member Brian Hobson who loved fishing the River Kenn in all winds and weather. Brian lost his long battle with cancer. Our sincere condolences to his family.

With angling all set to begin again on Wednesday, It is absolutely crucial that social distancing measures are adhered to and that the guidance to participate alone or with members of your own household are followed. We must not breach the rules the Prime Minister has laid down and we must ensure that we all act as ambassadors for our sport. Below are our easy to understand guidance cards for both Freshwater and Saltwater anglers. PLEASE SHARE.

Published 29th April….
There has been lots of activity on the angling front this month.
We were alerted to incidents of illegal fishing on the Land and Blind Yeo Rivers in the middle of the month. A poacher had been setting dead lines with artificial bait and corn using big hooks and braid, empty plastic milk cartons were used as markers. They were first discovered after a dog got entangled in them, thankfully the animal was not hurt. After contacting witnesses we were able to provide the Environment Agency Enforcement Team with a photograph of the offender, an address, his car registration and photographs of the dead lines plus names of two witnesses. Brilliant.
Some news has also started to filter through concerning proposals to commence fishing again while keeping within Government Guidelines. Check out the Angling Trust Website for more information.
Finally some really sad news …Veals Fishing Tackle in Bristol has closed their shop in Old Market, at the moment they are still running an On Line Shop.
