More sad news

It is with great sadness that I have to inform members that Ted Goodyear, the bailiff at Smith's Pond (Eastleigh &District Angling Club) has passed away. Anyone who fished Smith's Pond will have fond memories of Ted and his faithful German Shepherd, Rocky, turning out in all weathers to meet us at the gates. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts go out to his family and friends. Derek Wood

NMG Fisheries Pump Station Lakes

<:inline image1.jpg inline:> Our first visit to Pump Station Lakes today. A great day with my brother Alan on the 'canal' lake. 11 carp between us including a cracking 'double' for me. Also lost a couple. Fish all in lovely condition. Not bad for an autumn session. Only wish we had starting coming here sooner. We'll be back. Well done on a brilliant fishery Steve.

2 lbs plus roach in Horizon Match Meeting

Associate member Paul Parkin caught this stunning specimen 2 lbs 5 ozs roach while fishing a Horizon Match Meeting at Hambrook in September. It was the stand out highlight in a catch of over 70 fish giving him a remarkable match winning weight of over 23 lbs. The fish was witnessed and photographed by John Robinson. Well done Paul.
