Annual Charity Fishing Competition - Treoes Pond - Dec 31st 2014
Monday, 05 January 2015 14:08

Amanda Joseph

Hello everyone thought I'd give you an update on our annual charity New Years Eve's match that was held at Treoes last week, this years Charity was to raise money for an electric wheelchair for my niece Rhiannon who has a very rare condition Ichthyosis, which affects her mobility,  at present while in school she has to rely on friend to push her from class to class, but as you can appreciate she would far rather be independent in her mobility, having a electric wheelchair will go towards giving her the independence we able bodied people take for granted.

We were really lucky with the weather, it stayed dry but was still very cold seeing a large section of the lake frozen when we arrived at 8.30 and remained so most of the day.

With 24 anglers Fishing for four hours was hard work but there was some good weights caught, and we saw young Ashley Hoare being the winner so congratulations to him and he get a years club membership as his prize.

It only leaves me now to thank everyone for their support, massive thank you to all those who contributed raffle prizes, we had a visit from Go outdoors Cardiff who donated a prize.

Massive thank you to those who supported me on the day Carol Edwards and Donna Hoare who helped with everything, Carol provided us with her stunning Welsh cakes and her now famous corn-beef pie. Ta to my Mam for the lovely soup that warmed everyone one at the end of the match, Thanks to Paul Addecott and Albert Smith for the practical support that if I was  honest, would not have been able to do without them.

Lastly but by no means least I would like to thank all the people who came along, for those who braved the weather and fished, all those who called in to show their support buying raffle tickets, thanks to those anglers who donated to the fund even though they were not able to attend and to those non anglers who felt that it was good cause.

I am so pleased to announce that the grand total raised on the day was £438 which leaves feeling extremely proud and privileged to call you all my friends without you this would not have been possible.

Llantrythid Lake - Proposed Works.
Monday, 22 December 2014 04:07

Over the past months, Committee members have been negotiating with the Land Owner at Llantrythid Lake, to agree better access for our Members.  We have reached an amicable agreement with Mr Plant and have subsequently submitted the relevant planning permission requests with the Vale of Glamorgan Council to upgrade the existing access.

The proposed works will take place, if planning permission is granted, to implement a gravel track from the existing Car Park, which will extend through the two fields that members access the lake and construct a Car Park at the lake side. The new Car Park will be encompassed with a stock proof fence and farm gate for access. The Car park will be capable of parking up to 6 cars. This works as you can imagine to implement over 500 metres of track way, Car Park and new gates does come with quite a price tag, so some smaller projects we were looking at have for the time being, put on hold.

It is hoped that the work will start during the next Close season and the upgrade ready for the new season. Once we get the track way and car Park completed, we will need the help of the membership in the way of work parties to deal with the weed that is at present choking most of the pond.

BRYN HEDGES CUP REPORT
Monday, 03 November 2014 14:11

Last Sunday, 19th October an intrepid band of anglers (all six of us) gathered at Dixton Lane, Monmouth to fish for the inaugural Bryn Hedges Pike Cup on the River Wye.  Bryn has been a hero and inspiration to many Cardiff pike anglers for years since his 20lb+ St y Nyll pike has been displayed in Gary Evans shop in Whitchurch Road and it is a fitting tribute to the man to have an annual specimen trophy in his name.

With the river slightly up and coloured, it was hoped that the pike would be in an obliging mood and early indications, with a 14lb 3 ounce fish to Richard Turner were promising.  Unfortunately and until late in the competition, this remained the only fish caught, however the family Baxter combined to thwart Richard of the trophy with “Junior” Chris Baxter landing a fantastic fish of 20lb 3 ounces and dad, Mr Baxter Senior, weighing in with a bonus 10lb fish.

Thanks to all who attended and participated in the day, its days like these that highlight the potential of the Monmouth stretch of the Wye.  If you fancy an enjoyable days’ piking with the possibility of a trophy at the end of the day, keep your eyes open for details of next years’ event.
