Carp League – 1st Comp this coming weekend

Apr 2, 2019   //   by Merthyr Tydfil Angling Alliance   //   News  //  No Comments

Due to the work still not being completed at Cyfarthfa park I have decided to move the first carp league competition this Sunday (the 7th April) up onto Top Pond Pen-Y-Wern.

I would like to ask anyone wishing to fish the league this year to meet at the carp park at the centre of Top Pond at 08:30 this coming Sunday.

Please do not forget that this is a CARP LEAGUE so anyone turning up with any fishing gear that isn’t a carp fishing set up will not be allowed to enter the competition. Also each competitor must have a suitable net (36” minimum) an unhooking mat or cradle, carp care kit, a suitable weight sling. These are minimum requirements for entry.

I look forward to seeing you all there 👍

I would also like to ask everyone wishing to fish to bring along some cash as we may do a few prizes on the day

Paul Brown

Feb 11, 2019   //   by Merthyr Tydfil Angling Alliance   //   News  //  No Comments

It is with great regret that the Merthyr Anglers heard today of the death of Paul Brown.  Paul has been a great friend to the Angling Association and in his capacity as Councillor, Mayor and keen fisherman he was keen to see us promote fishing through our schools programme. We run taster days for Merthyr Schools and  each year, no matter what his public duties, he would turn up at the final to present the trophy.  The Angling community has lost a very good friend and our thoughts and prayers are with Paul’s wife Kath, son Jamie and their family.

Coarse Fish River Close Season – EA England Consultation

Jan 16, 2019   //   by Merthyr Tydfil Angling Alliance   //   News  //  No Comments

NRW have been asked to pass on the Consultation of the river coarse fishing close season currently being done by Environment Agency.  The indications are that which ever of the 3 options is favoured by EA England then NRW Wales will also adopt that option.   If you have any thoughts on the 3 options please let EA England know via the link below

We are consulting on the future of the statutory coarse fishing close season on rivers in England. 

You will be aware we have examined the evidence around the river coarse fishing close season and, earlier this year, surveyed anglers’ opinions on retaining, changing or removing the close season. We agreed with England Fisheries Group to consult more widely with the angling community. 

We are consulting on three options: 

  • Retain the current coarse fish close season on rivers – 15 March to 15 June;
  • Retain a close season, but change the duration – 15 April to 30 June;
  • Remove the close season altogether. 

The consultation will be online for 8 weeks from today (14 January) to 11 March 2019. It can be accessed at https://consult.environment-agency.gov.uk/fisheries/consultation-on-the-review-of-the-close-season. We also have arrangements to receive for email and postal responses. 

We are issuing a press release today (14 January) and notifying online licence buyers via our January e-newsletter. We will also post on social media. We are writing to national fisheries, wildlife and other partner organisations and have asked our area teams to publicise locally with clubs, fisheries and others. I would be grateful if you are also able to publicise through your own channels. I have attached a short briefing note, including some questions and answers. 

Once the consultation closes, we will collate and report the results. We anticipate a healthy responses, so this may take some time. 

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Paul Lidgett at paul.lidgett@environment-agency.gov.uk or on 0203 025 4614.
