Winterley is go.. again!

Following recent bad weather hampering Lymm AC with it’s netting operation there, Club Chairman and fisheries Manager Neil Boaz has today called for members to assist the club on the 2nd and 3rd of February.

Meeting point will be Whitley Pool at 08:30 hrs on both days, the group will then depart and meet at Winterley.

Neil says “We will definitely require all hands on deck please. As I have said many times the window of opportunity is very short for the netting season.”

If you can help, please be at Whitley Compound at 08:30 prompt, equipped with wet weather gear and a packed lunch. Nettings are great fun, and you can get to meet and get to know fellow members as well as learn the skills that go with netting.

Winterley Pool Netting

Lymm Angling Club will once again be undertaking a netting at Winterley Pool.

The 7.5 acre water situated near Haslington, Crewe, was recently netted over two days by Lymm AC with several thousands of silvers being relocated to other waters. This netting is being aided by the levels being reduced. It is hoped that removing even more silvers and small fish from the specimen pool will allow the larger inhabitants the chance to thrive further.

If you are available, please come to Whitley Compound at 8.30 am on either Saturday the 19th of January or the same time on Sunday the 20th of January. If you require further information, please use the Contact Us form or email admin@lymmanglersclub.com

Please note that if the netting is deemed succesful on Saturday that the Sunday session may need not take place. Please keep an eye on all Lymm’s online and social media feeds.

Release of the fishing rights to Milton Brook

In what is a very unusual reversal I have to inform you that the club will be giving up the fishing rights to Milton Brook on 31st January 2013. I say an unusual reversal because normally we would be adding to the clubs portfolio .

This has been a difficult decision for us to reach because we know how popular it has been with members. We have soldiered on until we went some way to replacing the venue. We now feel that we have done this by taking further pools on Chester Lakes with Doddleston Lake providing similar stocks to Milton Brook. This will provide an alternative to members living within the Chester and District area. In the South of our catchment we have acquired fishing rights to Fields Farm which again provides several pools containing Carp. We are also presently looking to add to our long list of still waters.

It is always a pity when waters have to be given up but I am sure you will all understand that every water does untimately  have to provide a comfortable safe environment in which to enjoy a days fishing and Milton Brook was no longer doing that.

I am sure those of you you understand the finer issues of this great sport will know that this reluctant decision has been made for the right reasons.

Neil Boaz

Fisheries Manager
