STURMINSTER & HINTON ANGLING ASSOCIATION
OCTOBER 2017
After a short interval the ANGLING TRUST (AT) has re-introduced its appeal for reports of sightings of fish-eating birds. With winter approaching and the probability of cormorants returning in numbers to our river it becomes more important than ever for sightings to be reported. Details on the AT on the 'Angling Trust' page.
Also on the 'Angling Trust' page you'll find details on the recruitment of Volunteer Bailiffs, an important job for members to do to protect our river and the fish in it. Go have a look!

In spite of an almost total lack of response to our appeal for comment on the desirability or otherwise of S&HAA continuing to be a member of the SLAC (click on 'Somerset Levels' page) we have decided to retain membership for one more year. Thanks to the TWO members who did respond.
 IF NO ADEQUATE RESPONSE IS RECEVED FROM MEMBERS BEFORE THE END OF NEXT SEASON WE WILL TERMINATE OUR MEMBERSHIP OF THE SLAC ORGANIZATION IN MARCH 2018.

Email or phone your catches to the Secretary - click on 'Contacts' - and we'll get the news on the website and in the local press.

Illegal fishing does take place on our waters and reproduced on the 'Angling Trust' page is a copy of the information produced by the Environment Agency and the Angling Trust.
It is difficult for individual anglers to take action but all our members are encouraged to follow the guidelines shown, the Police and the Environment Agency authorities are keen to help all genuine anglers and their clubs in the prevention of illegal angling and the more reports the authorities receive, the more likely they are to take action.

Attention Pike Anglers
With the winter approaching we still need a volunteer to represent the predator anglers and to run the pike matches. These are run on an ad-hoc basis throughout the winter, normally about once a fortnight. There are some great trophies to win at the end of the season and you can also get your name engraved on a trophy as a permanent reminder of what a brilliant pike angler you are.....
