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. Full guidance for Fisheries and Clubs can be found at https://joinanglingtrust.net/angling-support-hub-phase-one/
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.
How’s it going everyone during Lock Down? personally I am almost running out of jobs and missing my fishing but I would rather stay safe and follow the Government Guidelines, the fish will be still there when we defeat this virus. For those of you who are not aware I write a regular Fishing Blog, I started doing this in 2012. If you want a few fishing stories you will find plenty at http://ivansangle.blogspot.com Down the right hand side you can filter by venue and year.
As of now….23rd March 2020 …….the Clubs planned Match Programme is suspended until further notice. We will not be performing any bankside maintenance either and the Management Committee will be dealing with any issues via mobile technology.
Any updates etc will be published on this website as well as our Facebook page Clevedon FWAC
Stay safe all and hope to see on the bank when this virus has been beaten.
Progress concerning the Fishing Platform Project has been frustratingly slow. As previously posted on this News Page I did manage to obtain permission from the Flood Risk Prevention Team at the Environment Agency to site 12 platforms at specific grid references above and below Strode Rd. We were almost there with funding support from Sport England and then the Environment Agency Estates Team informed me that another arrangement concerning the land that runs alongside part of the river was being discussed. With who or what it entails is a mystery. I have been corresponding with the EA Estates Team over this since last August.
To-day (25th Feb) I have written to them again describing our frustration as a Club and the lack of co-operation despite having the fishing licence for the Blind Yeo since 1956!
Ivan Currie had a short morning session on peg 35 but didn’t really catch until late morning. Ended up with a 3lb pike, 3 perch one almost 2lbs, a 5lb plus bream and a 2lb tench. All on the waggles and red maggot. Mean while down on peg 15 Paul Tedman-Whitemoor set his stall out for big fish. he only had 2 bites and connected with one resulting in a chub, yes a chub weighing 4lb 13oz. Fishings a funny old game on the Kenn but “he who dares wins” as they say…..
