The 2019 AGM took place on Monday 18th March at the Mill End Sports and Social Club, 39 members attended and the official minutes are recorded on this site, but a few major points are recorded here.
The bye-law regarding no fishing for spawning fish was unanimously ratified and has been entered into the Rules & Regulations.
A members proposal to stock 40 C5 Priory Carp into the Pynesfield Lakes in 2020 & 2021 was agreed on a majority vote and will form part of the Stocking policy until the end of the 2021/22 season on the Pynesfields. A second proposal to stock 30 C4 VS Fisheries Carp into Troy Lake in 2019 was agreed on a majority vote and this will form the stocking policy for the current 2019/20 season on Troy Lake.
No increase in membership Fees were requested for this season, but the Chairman advised the members that a rise will be needed next season to maintain our accounts balance and to meet the regular annual increase in Licence Fees from our landlords.
The current committee were voted for en block and will serve for the 2019/20 season.
The Pike Match that took place on Sunday 17th February 2019 on Troy Lake, was a complete success. 19 anglers took part and 19 fish were caught. This included a number of double figure fish, the largest going to 18 lb.
Due to this success, it is likely the committee will run another, similar match next year and are now considering running a Carp Match on Troy, possibly over the May Bank holiday. Interested? Then watch this place.
