Announcements

Please take five minutes to look at our Sponsors Here!

 The 2017 AGM was well attended and there was a very positive attitude regarding the state of the club going forward. A new committee was elected. Fred, Richard and Dave were re-elected as Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Treasurer. Graham is on the mend and will continue as Membership Secretary (well done Graham). John Robinson assisted by Jan Horton have been elected to the vacant Secretary role and Derek will continue in the role of Match Organiser. Dominic Haines was elected to fill the vacant Bailiff position and will be assisted by Paul Parkin. Dom is an accomplished angler and has fulfilled the Bailiff position on other waters for other clubs and will be a great addition to the team. Sue O'Donnell was re-elected as the Associate Members Representative on the committee.
Please feel free to put any questions to any of the committee team. It's a Members club and the team want to run it for the benefit of you, the members. Let's hear from you.
So Anyone wishing to help further within the Club should speak to a committee member, as various posts are available in the sub Committee status. Volunteers are always welcome from outside of the club if anyone finds they have a spare few hours and enjoy Angling or just have time to help with Admin duties, please contact The Committee click here

Work Party

If you have an Hour or more to spare then support your Club by helping out clear some debris from the Lakes and banks leading to a safer more comfortable Angling experience, so rather than leave it to someone else come along and help out. The committee is to make it mandatory within the rules as we would prefer it to be voluntary but they are our Lakes and need maintenance to be kept pristine and safe not only for us but the valuable fish we have stocked it with and would like to keep it that way.

let us know if you wish to attend as we supply Tea/Coffee and Bacon Rolls to those who turn up, as even those in buggy's can cut or trim the new bush shoots.   click Me

Round 9 at Havant Lakes on Sunday 28th May

Round 10 at Smiths Pond Wednesday 7th June

***

This year, due to a fewer number of Associate Members who fish match meetings, we will run one Coarse Match Meeting Competition League which will be open to all members whether Full or Associate. There will also be a new Havant Lakes Cup which, we feel,  will be an advantage to members who can only make it to weekend match meetings.

***

For 2017, any fish deemed too small to weigh individually, will now be counted as one ounce (two ounces in 2015 and 2016). A small wet plastic bag with a handle can easily be used to weigh a small fish safely before being returned. Anyone needing digital weighing scales, Graham can supply these at a competitive price.

 

***

To help prevent the transfer of disease between waters, please remember to dip your nets, mats and slings in disinfectant tanks where provided, and to dry nets, mats and slings before going on your next session.

***

Please follow any instructions given by on-site Bailiffs and Match Organiser and remember to take all litter home after fishing.

Testimonial

When the Horizon Angling Club for the disabled first contacted WetWheels in 2015 it was always going to be the perfect partnership. The Horizon AC ticked all the boxes for our WetWheels operation. A group of enthusiastic, friendly and down to earth guys who love their boat fishing going out on our fully accessible power catamaran with an owner and skipper who also love fishing was always going to work. We at WetWheels have been looking for a club just like Horizon to use our specialist facilities on board and now we are looking forward to many more successful fishing trips in 2016 and beyond.

not listening to the club instructor ended up with this poor fella having a hook bum as it is known in the sport.
