Letter From the Secretary

Dated 24th June 2008

Hello Readers

The new season is now underway and Kinver Freeliners AC waters are fishing well. Large bags of Tench to 8lbs coming from the Big Pool at Dudmaston plus quality Roach to 1lb 8ozs, Rudd and Perch. Seggy Pool producing Carp to 14 lbs plus numbers of smaller fish including Rudd, Carp and Tench. Only a matter of time to the first 20lb Carp from this Pool I think. Brim Pool quiet due to weed.

Hampton Loade has produced Barbel to 10lb 8ozs in the first week with Chub and Perch as backup fish
Riverlands Farm on the Teme turned up Barbel to 8.5 lbs on the first day with Chub coming to 4lb 8oz.

Wick Grange on the Avon has a few Bream showing plus Roach, Perch and Eels, as has Kempsey on the Lower Severn.

Altogether a better start than last years deluge, I’m sure you’ll agree.

The track at Riverlands farm has now been smoothed out, so access is better than last winter.

The demonstration in Bewdley on the 22nd June had a reasonable turnout and the backing of the Mayor of Bewdley, who stated that “angling is the life blood of this town”. It was stated to Angling Times by Wyre Forest Council that they have no immediate plans to ban fishing in the area so hopefully that might be an end to it. A new club was formed called Bewdley AC to fight against the possibility of any future bans in the area and with the stated aim of reversing any existing bans. Kinver Freeliners Angling Club supports this wholeheartedly.

Whilst on the subject of Angling Times, a feature has been done by them on Dudmaston with the help of Committee Member Mike Bowker and we hope to see this appear in the 8th July issue. Many thanks go to Mike for his work on this.

Kinver Freeliners Angling Club is doing its best to support junior angling and this year we have decided to let juniors who have parents or grandparents in the club have free membership up to a maximum of 2 per member. If you decide to join your child or grandchild then please complete an application form from the join page. You will need 2 photo’s of the child plus 1 of the supervising adult who is a member already, or is joining at the same time.

On the subject of juniors, the Barbel Society have again offered places on their tutorial day on the 6th September to our juniors. I cannot recommend this day too highly. It is a fantastic chance to learn the finer points of Barbel fishing with someone who knows the game on a one to one basis. The day is free but you must let secretary know if you wish your child to participate so that numbers can be passed on to Barbel Society.

Don’t forget this years Eel nights at Dudmaston Big Pool. A chance to fish this water at night and fish for its elusive big Eels or whatever else takes your fancy. Inform Secretary if you plan to fish on these nights on 5th July and 16th August.

This year the turnout for work parties was very poor and there are going to have to be changes. Our thanks to those that did participate. You know who you are. Next year we are likely to allocate every member a peg at a venue to be done anytime from May 1st to the start of the season. Would appreciate any thoughts on this as it is a perennial problem.

Graham Wright
