At the AGM it was proposed and carried that members would be permitted to fish a maximum of three rods at Hill Top Reservoir. ONLY! For a member to be able to do this, he will have to be in possession of, TWO ENVIRONMENT AGENCY ROD LICENCES. You must also have purchased TWO second rod permits of the appropriate category.


THERE IS TO BE A CHARITY FUN RUN ALONG THE TOWPATH OF THE CANAL ON SATURDAY MAY 12TH 2018 FROM LONGROYD BRIDGE TO LOW WESTWOOD LANE(TOP OF REED POND,TITANIC MILL)
IT WILL BE BEST TO AVOID THE CANAL ON THAT DAY.

 

We have decided to launch a FACEBOOK PHOTO COMPETITION, where you could win a free membership for the 2018/2019 season.

Just post your photographs of fish caught on Slaithwaite Angling club waters with details of where and when your catch was taken. Ideally include a recognisable background as confirmation of where you caught your fish.

This competition is open to both annual members and to day ticket anglers.

The closing date for the competition is 28th February 2018, the committee will then award one entrant with a free membership for the coming season.

Photographs that have already been posted this year will be considered in the judging process.

Good luck to all!!
