Barry Ponds – New Islands
Monday 1 August 2016

Could all members please be aware that over the next week or so, 4 small islands will be installed at Barry Ponds, 2 on Carols Pond and 2 on Sues pond. These are floating Islands that have a fish friendly mesh below them, that act as refuge for juvenile fish to hide from Cormorants. The islands are 2m x 2m each and have live plants growing on the top. They are anchored to the pond bed, so please be mindful when casting close to these islands.
These Islands were donated by NRW and if prove to be a success, we will look at deploying more on other still waters.

Keep Nets
Tuesday 26 July 2016

Until further notice, Keep Nets are not permitted on Club Still Waters other than for official Club Matches. Notices will be posted on Gates and notice boards. If you see anyone using a keep net ‎please ask them to remove it from the water. Any problems please call the head Bailiff. 

Environment Agency Testing
Tuesday 26 July 2016

We are looking to invite people to take part in a 1 hour session at Box UK's offices on Westgate Street in Cardiff to study the ease of use and design of the "buy a fishing rod license" website for the Environment Agency. There are no right or wrong answers, we're simply keen to hear your thoughts and learn how it could be further improved. You'll be supported throughout by a member of the research team and no other people will be involved. Once you have completed the study you will receive a £40 payment as a thank you for your time and participation. We have 6 positions available (including 1 spare) on Tuesday 9th August between 10am and 4.30pm. Each study would be an hour long.
If you'd like to be considered, please complete our quick survey and we'll be in touch if you are successful.

48 Hour Charity Event 2016 – Treoes pond.
Tuesday 5 July 2016

So, yet another 48 hour Charity event has been completed by Club members. This year, our Website Administrator Julian Johnson took time out to make a short video of the event and why we do it. This can be found on both the Club web Site and Facebook page.
It must be said that although we had a few less Anglers this year, with a total of 33 Anglers taking Part, which included 3 Juniors, we did manage to raise so far £3,700.00 and the total is still rising, which our chosen Charity Y Bont will let us know the final figure in a month or so. This is because we were given 2 very special items to raise money with, which were a signed Rugby Ball from Ospreys RFC which Amanda Joseph provided and a signed Photo of Wales Footballer Gareth Bale, which Darren Hunt gave us. Both these items Y Bont will auction and let us know what they raised, but it goes without saying that with the success of Wales Football Team in the Euro 16 tournament, the signed Photo will raise we hope a significant amount of money. We would also like to say thanks to Club Treasurer Mike Bishop, who on his first ever Charity Event raised an amazing £1060.00 in sponsorship.
We cannot thank everyone individually for their efforts last weekend, but praise must go to head Bailiff Brian Dickman for cooking the BBQ for us, which went down a treat.
Although the weather at times went against us, the total weight of Fish caught was well over 2500lbs and the results for the fishing were:

1st Josh Bowley – 841lbs 10oz

2nd Jeremy Smallwood – 544lbs 4oz

Ladies winner – Jenny Collins – 254lbs 2oz

Junior Winner – John Hoare – 120lbs 6oz

Best Fish – Ian Lewis – 16lbs 4oz

Thanks to everyone who took part in the event and everyone who supported us, see you all next year.
If you would like to find out more about Y Bont go to their website here or facebook page here

48 Hour Charity Event
Tuesday 28 June 2016

Just a reminder that Treoes will be closed from midday Friday 1st July until 4pm Sunday 3rd July. This is for this years Charity event. All members are welcome to come down to the pond over the weekend and support the event. If anyone has any raffle prizes they would like to donate, please just bring them along.

Llantrythid Lake
Friday 3 June 2016

The Lake will open to Club Members on 16th June 2016. Night Group Members are permitted to fish this water in dark hours, but due to the very limited parking will only be permitted to a 24 hour session at any time. Please book with the Head Bailiff in advance as per NFG Rules.
·         The gate at the track entrance by the farm has a club lock on it along with 2 other locks. Please ensure you lock the gate behind you when entering or leaving the site. Please also be considerate of the residents by the entrance to the track and keep all noise down to a minimum - switch car radio's ect off before getting out to unlock the gate. This gate has 3 locks on it, each of which opens the gate, obviously use the GAC one.
·         Parking is very limited and is on a first come, first served basis. The maximum number of cars allowed in the lakeside car park is 6. If members car share, this would help.
·         If the new Car Park has reached its 6 car limit when you visit, members can drop their gear at the pond, drive up to the old car park, then walking down to the pond. You may then at the end of your fishing session, return to the pond with your vehicle to collect your gear.
·         Lock all gates at all times.
·         Under no circumstances are vehicles permitted to go through the gate leading to the pond.
·         The Toilet facility will have a Club lock on it and is for members usage.
·         Parking on the trackway is not permitted at any time.
·         Day Shelters and Bivvies are to be set up on the bank opposite the Car Park and not on the Car Park bank for the time being. This is because Grass seed has been planted on the Car Park Bank and we would like to let it get established before allowing shelters to be erected on it.
·         Young Trees have been planted around the pond, please do not cut down or break off any foliage.
·         When there are Club organised events on this pond, due to parking restrictions, we will have to close the pond for these events. These will be advertised on the Club Web site in advance.

There is a strict speed limit of 5mph on the track down to the lake. Be aware that there are livestock in the field that leads down to the car park and they are sometimes reluctant to move from the track! Take extreme care.

The Club has spent a huge amount of Money to get this lake to the standard it now is, so please look after the facility and enjoy the Fishing.

All club members are welcome to come and support the event, which will mean the  Chairman will fleece you of all your change and supply you with raffle tickets in exchange. If anyone has any raffle prizes they would like to donate, then please by all means bring them along.
