Thanks to our members for turning out on Friday 20th January in the icy North-westerly blast under unbroken sunshine to improve the bank between Berrybutt Spinney and New Zealand Point. It has made the whole area much more fishable.

Our work could be seen as quite green as we removed a very tolerable suspender fry pattern plus leader and dropper attached to one of the offending trees. Floating fry expert, Mick Connor pleaded “not guilty”!

Thanks to AW Ranger, John Battison for doing the heavy work with the chainsaw.

The next place to attack will be Barnsdale Road End. We will notify the club membership of the date in due course.

A team of volunteers got together on Friday 6th January to clear the bank at East Creek. Together with Anglian Water staff a substantial area was cleared. This work opened up a number of new fishing spots and a beautiful oak tree which can now be seen.
