  21 May 2019 -  Litter  
     
  Anglers.

Take your rubbish home with you, this includes discarded lines and tackle, which is not only littering and contrary to our rules, but also serves as a massive hazard to wildlife.

A length of line was collected today by peg 11 on Heron Pond at Goose Green, approx 50m in length and around 10lb breaking strain that had just been left loose on the ground.

May we remind you of our rules, littering is not acceptable in any form and could result in the loss of your membership.

We don't have many rules, but those we do have are fairly simple to follow, if you find you cannot abide by our rules, then please find another club because litter louts are not welcome at Pulborough AS.

Perch - 1 x14oz + 6 0z of small Perch to New Pond
 

All other fish caught were returned to Kingfisher Pond.

  5 February 2019 -  Unauthorised Tree Cutting  
     
 

May we remind members that per our rules you ARE NOT PERMITTED to cut down any trees or vegetation and to do so risks you losing your membership, today we found a number of trees between pegs 18 - 21 that have been cut very recently and left with high stumps.

We will not let all the hard work of our volunteers who work tirelessly to keep the fishery looking nice to be destroyed by a few idiots who feel the rules do not apply to them, well to these idiots we simply say the rules DO apply to you and they will be enforced, we therefore suggest that you read & inwardly digest them.

If our rules are too difficult for you or you feel they do not apply to you, then with respect, we suggest you find an alternative angling club to join as we do not vandals and litter louts in our club.

 
     
     
  2 February 2019 -  Work Party  
     
     
 

An excellent turn out for the work party at Goose Green today, i had hoped to attend for a short while today, but unfortunately my health situation decided otherwise.

My personal thanks go to the following members for helping to maintain the fishery;
 

Ant, Allan, Eddie (also for the photo's), Barry R, Paul, Terry, Mike R, Dudley, Ian, Charles, Lewis & Martin.
 

By all accounts an incredible amount of work was undertaken by those involved, further work parties are planned for the not too distant future, please keep an eye on the club website, Facebook page and of course the huge blue notice board on the container that you can't fail to miss.
