Re: Bridge at Wick

To be honest given a bit of co-operation from the land owner if we could drive another 100 yards beyond the car park up to the fence line you would not need to use the dodgy bridge over the ditch.
The path through the woods brings you out above the lock.
You could reduce the walk & not have to repair the bridge.

Re: Bridge at wick

Hi mate, you posted late July 2020, i was down there end of September and to be quite honest it's an accident waiting to happen.
GirlingAS are there 10th October, there's a club there this Sunday 4/10/2020.
Can I suggest to the BAA that when you finalise tenders to sort out the venues the bridge at Wick be given a high priority.

Wick above the Lock - Cleared

The Girling AS guys were looking forward to Wick on the 10th October, it always fishes well but as a lot of BAA venues this season it's a little overgrown. One of our members found 10 fishable pegs during a visit last week.
Three Girling AS guys went to Wick today and in 2 hours cleared the 20 pegs above the lock removing several branches and its now very fishable.
I note that there is a club there Sunday 4th October, you will find the pegs are sorted, i would appreciate it if you could let me know how you get on.
Car Park - I noticed today that there are tyre tracks to the end peg, anyone who's been there knows it's a long walk pulling your gear. Why can't the BAA negotiate with the land owner to allow cars beyond the current Car Park. Without the walk this venue would be booked every week.

GirlingAS Pensham 1-2-3 Match - Farce

We turned up at Pensham 1-2-3 on the 5th Sept. 2020 with a turnout of sixteen, the two guys pegging out found 10 fishable pegs in the three meadows, the others were totally overgrown. They walked upstream into meadow 4 and found two safe platforms. We had put our gear back in the cars and the guys walked back through the length to collect the pegs.
Luckily we had our own stretch to transfer to and we managed to complete our match starting an hour late.
Any other business providing this kind of service would have been bankrupt by now.
If the stretch is un-fishable let the clubs know, it's almost as if disappointing your customers has become the norm.
Seriously Pissed off.

Re: illegal Fishing

A bit of encouragement for the River fishing Clubs.
We (GirlingAS) have had 12 new members fishing the river matches this season. This is a complete turn around to the last two decades where we saw the move to commercial fisheries. We believe the reason is our the 3 year effort to update the 35 pegs to have robust steps and platforms in every peg.
Anglers don't want to walk a mile to unsafe pegs and catch a few bits when you can park behind your peg and catch a big bag of Carp.
I guess the point here is producing excellent safe pegs on river venues will work and there are many anglers out there who havn't totally given up on natural venues.
