My personal thanks to Ant , Allan, Dudley, Terry and Paul who despite
today's work party being cancelled, turned out anyway in the peeing rain to
help maintain your fishery, only giving up when the rain became too heavy to
Pegs 5 & 8 have been repaired and a leaning tree removed.

Keepnets may once again be used at Goose Green, please ensure you are conversant with the rules concerning their use, see your rule book for details.
|26 August 2018 - Road Closure|
|Members are advised that on Sunday 23rd September the main Ashington to Adversane road (Think it's the B2133) will be closed due to the Velo South bicycle race.|
|21 July 2018 - Batchelor Cup|
We have noted that the Batchelor Cup is on the fixture list for 22 July and 16th December, our mistake, the match in December will be run as a regular club match with no trophy.
|9 July 2018 - BBQ's|
|We have been advised that some members are lighting BBQ's at our fisheries, may we respectfully ask you not to light or use any open/naked flame during these current dry conditions, it only takes one spark to light the tinder dry ground and possibly cause a major incident.|
|1 July 2018 - Keepnets|
Due to the prolonged period of hot, humid weather and
subsequent reduced Do2 levels, we have taken the decision to
temporarily ban the use of keepnets/carp sacks on all club lakes & ponds,
keepnets may still used in bona fide club matches as detailed on the fixture
list, if it's not on the
Fixture List, the answer is "no".
The situation will be monitored over the coming days/weeks and addressed accordingly.
Thank you for your understanding

|19th May 2018 - Work Party Thanks & Unauthorised Cutting Of Reed Beds|
My thanks to everyone who turned out today for the work party at Goose
Sandy, Eddie, Grahame, Dudley, Allan, Barry R, Martin & Lewis.
Lots achieved again by so few.
We would like to thank the individual(s) who decided that 80 pegs at Goose
Green were just not good enough for them and decided to cut two new pegs in
the reed bed between Peg 79 & 80 on Deep Lake.
A small and dedicated band of volunteers work really hard to keep the fishery maintained and we will not allow a few idiots to ruin it because they think they know better.
|18th May 2018 - Wafters|
|Further to our recent post regarding members concerns over the hook baits known as Wafters and following information received and verified with a manufacturer of these baits, it has been confirmed that Wafters, including those marketed and labelled as Pellet Wafters are in fact boilies, and therefore under our no boilie rule these baits are banned with immediate effect.|
|12th May 2018 - Big Perch|
Cracking Perch of 3-13-0 caught by Tim from Heron pond at Goose Green this week, in Tim's own words "I was so made up that I nearly packed up and went to the pub!"

|1st April 2018 - Logo Competition|
Next year sees us celebrate our centenary year and to mark the occasion we thought it would be fitting to run a small competition to celebrate 100 years of Pulborough Angling Society and that's where you come in.
The competition we have thought of is to redesign and update our logo, so if you wish to enter all you have to do is design a new logo for the Society, but it must incorporate our centenary of 1919 - 2019, the winning logo will be used on all club paperwork, membership cards, website, Facebook page etc, so ideally we are looking for something that can be used as a website banner, Facebook profile image and a simple logo for cards and paperwork, it also needs to stay relevant beyond 2019.
This competition starts as soon as
this post has been published and closes on 31st July 2018, any entries
received after this date will not be considered, the competition is open to
all and the lucky winner will win a years free membership to Pulborough AS,
as well as seeing their design used for all official club business, there is
no cash alternative to the prize, our word is final & no communications or
correspondence will be entered into. Please DO NOT post your entry on
our Facebook page, if you do it will be deleted, all entries must be sent to
the email address as below.

|7th February 2018 - Work Parties|
I am in the process of planning a couple of work parties
for the near future that will concentrate on repairing and rebuilding some
of the swims at Goose Green that have seen better days
As i still have limited mobility and cannot physically get to all of the swims to ascertain what materials are required, i need someone to make a list of the swims that need attention and materials that would be needed to repair/rebuild them ie, timber, hardcore (im already working on obtaining some broken brick), fixtures & fittings ie, nails, coach screws, brackets etc that we need to do the job, i don't want to do a half arsed job, when we do it, we are going to do it properly, so the swims last for a long time, therefore im looking for someone who can make an informed decision.
If you are able to help either by working out the materials needed and/or by helping us with hardcore/timber either by donation to the club or at "mates rates" then please get in touch with me.
We only need one person to work out what materials are needed, please don't just go and do it before speaking with me as i don't want to end up with people duplicating work.
My details are as follows
T: 07910 319485
or you can message me through the club facebook page.
Thanks in advance
