Big Barbel from Wateringbury!

Check out the photo of an 11lb14oz Barbel that member Gordon Lindsey caught from our stretch of the River Medway at Wateringbury recently.

Excessive bait warning

Can members please refrain from piling in loads of excessive bait into our waters during the hot periods as this affects the water quality and puts our fish stocks health at risk.

This is particularly important at the more busy venues like Springwood as all you are doing is putting your bait on top of someone elses pile of uneaten bait.

Sawlodge Farm CLOSED on these Shoot Dates
