Clarification of Lease

Members may have been told that the waters above the Pay Bridge are now leased by a syndicate. For clarification: the riparian owner has at no time contacted the club to terminate our lease, messages have been mistakenly passed by others.

The club, in order to clarify the situation has contacted the riparian owner who has confirmed that the club’s members are able to fish these waters in line with our lease.

Please remember, if and when anything changes in relation to any of your fishing on Willington waters the club will notify members directly.

Grayling Day

A quick reminder from our secretary that we have decided to hold a repeat of this event following last years success. The plan is to hold this years event on the 19th November 2107.

Please register your interest early.

The idea behind the day is to get anglers interested in Grayling Fishing and to try and determine the levels of grayling present in our waters.
The event will again attended by Stuart Wardle who is a an England International Fly angler and Guide as well as the Regional secretary for the Grayling Society and has a wealth of knowledge in relation to this beautiful fish and the techniques required, as well as members of the Grayling Society, who will be able to advise members on techniques and tackle to tackle these fantastic fish.
The agenda for the day will be as follows :
Please meet at Jubilee Bridge carpark Grid Reference NZ 20859 34407, Nearest postcode DL15 0DJ  for approximately 10am with a view to commence fishing from 11am.
Stuart and the members of the grayling Society will be on hand to answer any questions relating to tackle and techniques. We are also aiming to have tea and coffee available for those that attend and everything to plan there will be soup available.
The day is aimed at all angling abilities with enjoyment the key aim. For those anglers that want to fish we will be aiming to collect some data in relation to fish sizes, numbers and spread so the completion of a catch return is essential and these will be handed out on the day of the event.
This is an open event and any member wishing to bring a guest on the day may do so all that is needed is for all participants to register an interest at the earliest opportunity so I can ensure that there is sufficient refreshments available and if necessary allocate anglers to particular sections of the river or team them up with more experienced Grayling anglers if required.
The event totally reliant on the river levels, please contact me or watch the clubs website in the event of high water levels for clarification on whether the event is to go ahead
