News update ================================================================================================

Work Party Date Saturday 8 July

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 does not wish to make it mandatory within the rules as we would prefer it to be voluntary, so please don't leave it to someone else to do as they are our Lakes and need maintenance to be kept pristine and safe not only for us but the Disabled and Able alike who fish them, and would like to keep it that way.

Please let us know by using the "click Me" button below if you wish to attend as we supply Tea/Coffee or cold drinks if you prefer and Bacon Rolls to those who turn up, as every little helps keep it safe for others.   click Me

Left till Meeting 12

Round 12 at Havant 25th June

Round 13 at Three oaks 27th 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.
