Newhalls Meadow tree removal
Over the years pegs have been lost at Newhalls Meadow as a result of large trees falling or loosing branches.
The removal and felling of these large trees is beyond what the Fisheries Team is equipped to do and as a result, a team of professional tree surgeons was employed for 5 days to carry out the removal of trees in the downstream half of the fishery.
This improves and increases the number of pegs available at a fishery well known for catches of roach and large bream especially in the winter months.
The BAA is considering having the remaining half of the fishery cleared in 2019.
