Twenty-four members attended the day, this meant we had the whole venue to ourselves! The morning started with a breakfast bap, tea and coffee and everyone eager to get to one of the four lakes on offer.
After anxiously checking the weather forecast every day for the week before our 35th Anniversary outing to
Rockbourne it turned out that we could not have wished for a better day.
The fishing initially started slowly, with one of the early fish caught weighing in at 6lb 10oz. During the first period about half the anglers caught good quality fish.
AVON SPRINGS & AGM
With great expectation 23 of us arrived at Avon Springs for the last visit of the year. This is a fishery that ranks high on the list of favourites for many of the members and rarely if ever disappoints.

Tributes to Absent Friends

Having endured freezing temperatures earlier in the week, and heavy rain two days later the gods smiled on us, and we had perfect fishing weather for this the last outing of the season…
Flaming June has been flaming wet, but for this outing it was a beautiful day, could it be summer has arrived? 20 of us met at the Crown Inn for an excellent breakfast, then off to the fishery. …
