Letter From the Secretary

Spring/Summer 2010 Newsletter


Dear Member,

Welcome to Kinver Freeliners AC’s Spring/Summer 2010 Newsletter.

Firstly I’d like to welcome all our new members to the Club. I hope you enjoy the fishing this season and for many more to come. If you have any problems, don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll do my best to help.

I try to send out three or four Newsletters each season, to help keep members informed of the goings on within the Club. We always use to try to include a short article or story written by a member within the Newsletter and I’d like to start doing that again. So if you fancy writing a short piece, maybe about a session you’ve had on one of our waters or a method you fish that works particularly well, then feel free to send it over to me (probably best on Email) and I’ll try to include it in the next Newsletter.

Some of you might remember that we had a Tench fishing DVD partly recorded on the Big pool last spring. The DVD was called “Tench Fishing”, starred Mark Barrett & Chris Ponsford and was to show the different methods and styles between gravel pit fishing and estate lake fishing. The first part was filmed on the famous Bawburgh complex in Norfolk with Mark, with the second part taking place on our water with Chris. The DVD is now available, and can be purchased from or ring Tom (camera man/producer) on (01474 564200).

OK, there are a few things I’d like to bring you up to date with since the last Newsletter and the Clubs AGM.

You will notice that we have reduced the size of the membership card. A number of members asked if it could be made smaller. Obviously we can’t get as much info on the small card, so I’ve included the rules on a separate sheet. You will also notice that the rules have been revised. Please take a moment to read the new rules as they form an important part of the Club.

Your Committee try’s to keep the rules to a minimum but some are enforced upon us by the water owners and other as common sense measures to help things run smoothly.

You will also notice that the membership now runs from 1st April to 31st March. This is to bring the years fishing both in line with the end of year accounts and also the EA rod licence, which runs on the same term. It will also enable members to fish our waters that are open during the spring and enable those new members to participate with the work parties.

We have also decided to drop the charge for the Kempsey Night Syndicate. At the end of the day we want to encourage members to fish our water, not put obstacles in place to put people off. We will still be running the night fishing on a syndicate style fishing and you will still need to apply to me for a night syndicate pass and car park pass but there will simply be no charge. There is a limit on numbers and we will be offering places to existing night syndicate members first, with the remaining spaces offered on a first come first served basis to club members. Please contact me if you’re interested in joining the Kempsey Night Syndicate.

Included in your membership pack is a copy of our new water booklet. I hope you find this a little more ‘user friendly’ than the old one. On the back page you will see our latest water- Yeandly farm.

Talking of new waters, Woodlands has been a bit of a revelation for those members that have fished down there. OK, it’s not the same as the lakes at Dudmaston, but for some fun fishing it’s been great. There have been carp out to over 17lb, along with Tench, Perch, Roach, Rudd and Bream. I suspect the fishing will get better as the waters start to warm up and the fish get use to a bit more bait been introduced than they have had in the past.

Lastly, don’t forget the Eel nights:  Saturday 26th June, Saturday 24th July & Saturday 21st August.

These nights are TICKET ONLY and limited so please contact me in advance if you require Eel Night tickets.  

Well that’s about it from me for this Newsletter, have a great season, and please don’t forget to keep sending me photos for the website.

Steve Williams
