I hope this update finds you all well,
Following last night’s committee meeting and written consent from Welsh Water we are now in a position to open all our waters from This Friday 19th June. This includes the Ponsticill, Dolygaer, Cantref and Talybont. PLEASE DO NOT FISH THESE WATERS UNTIL FRIDAY.
We have decided to continue with the suspension on day ticket sales for some time to allow priority to our members to access the water. This will continue to be monitored and reviewed following this Fridays announcement.
We appreciate your patience in working with us during these challenging times. No doubt there could be changes again but for now the guidance from welsh assembly government needs to be adhered to.
- No anglers must be within 2 metres of each other or members of the public.
- One angler per peg, as always.
We are also now in a position where we are opening our fisheries for night fishing. This will be inline with Welsh Government guidance where night fishing is permitted without the use of camping, we will not be able to provide any guidance on what that means as it has not been justified and will leave that to your own interpretation.
The only small issue we have moving forward is with litter being left by anglers out our waters. We have currently suspended day ticket sales so if this problem is escalating it is from our own members. There are bins at most venues please use them, any members in future caught leaving the venue in a mess will have 2 options, assisting the in maintaining the venue or leaving the club.
As ever if you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting me: firstname.lastname@example.org
