February meeting cancelled.

Dom and I are very sorry but due to circumstances outside our control the meeting in February has had to be cancelled. Plans are afoot to make the last meeting of the season in March a fish-in on the Grand Western Canal on a Sunday morning followed by a free buffet lunch at the Barge pub afterwards, any thoughts on this would be welcomed if only to get a rough idea of numbers.

Lure Anglers Society Fish-In

I know it is a little way off yet but I was speaking to Paul aka "Shrek" of the Lure Anglers Society today and he has organised the first South West regional fish-in that they have had for a few years.

Here is his post from the LAS forum
"We are having our first fish-in for a few years on Sunday 10th April.
Details are, meet at 7-00 am for 7-30 start at the Lime kilns car park on the Exeter canal. We will fish until 3-00pm
Beginners are welcome and day tickets will be available on the day at £5-00.
All are welcome, and remember the canal has produced Pike over 30lb at this time of year!
We are hoping to give tuition in Pike handling to anyone who would like it as well. "

Sat Nav co-ordinates for the car park are
Latitude 50°41'21.07"N
Longitude 3°29'33.75"W

It would be nice if any of us who are lure fishermen could go along and support this event, everybody is welcome and you do not have to be a member of the LAS or the PAC to attend, I will remind everybody again nearer to the date.
