We just wanted to keep you up to date with developments with Rachel's & Winchester's, we now have in place a 12 year lease on these waters and surrounding area. This will allow up to develop the area extending Rachel's pond and constructing another small water at the rear of Winchesters pond, a hard standing will be created to be used as a car park. Please see attached image for a visual look at proposals.
These developments all require planning permission and we are in discussion with Fylde Council to see what steps we are required to take to make our proposals a reality. As we receive further information we will let you know.
The current climate has slowed progress but we hope things will start moving forward in the next 12 months.
The main three waters were pretty much full today, and with this better weather spawning may be soon upon us and the fishing not as good.
Please can I ask all members to read the new rules to cover the current climate which are located on the notice board and both main gates at the Back Lane ponds. These rules are to adhere to social distancing and to keep you the members safe.
We have had a number of incidents regarding members flouting these measures. Please don't get upset with members or the committee challenging you if you are indeed breaking these rules.
*** DO NOT FISH ANY PEG WHICH HAS A RED X ON IT***
We have had an influx of new members in the past week but this still leaves us with less members than in previous years. The main waters will be busy in the coming weeks and months, we all need to work together and be patient.
We do have a number of other waters available for members, I know these waters may not be as easily accessible as the three main waters and are not kept in the same manner (Due to lack of available hands) but if you can please venture out and maybe clear a peg for yourself and enjoy something a little different.
Any issues give me a ring my number is on the reverse of your card, and remember this is YOUR fishing society as members, please look after it and be safe during this time.
