May 2023 News

Season Tickets

The new season tickets for 2023-2024 are now on sale in the outlets. See the website for details of where you can purchase them. Prices are still the same as last season.

The tickets now start on the 1st June 2023 and end on the 31st May 2024.

Closed Season

The closed season on rivers has started and will run until Thursday 15th June inclusive.

You will next be able to fish the River Parrett again starting on Friday 16th June 2023.

Francis Deacon

With much sadness, we have to announce the passing of our dear friend, fellow angler and club member, Francis. He was a Life Member of the club and a past committee member, who loved fishing the River Parrett with his seven metre whip, with maggot and hemp, for roach.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Combe Lake open again

With the replacement of a gatepost, the maintenance for the winter of 2022/23 is now complete and the lake is now open for fishing again.


During clearance of the brambles and undergrowth, a lot of tins, cans and bottles were found.

Don't just throw your litter in the undergrowth; take it home with you!

Match Organiser

There is currently a vacancy for a Match Organiser. If anyone is interested in organising matches on the River Parrett, please contact us.


An angler was caught recently fishing boilies at Combe Lake. They are not permitted in the lake. If you want to fish with boilies, find a lake somewhere else that allows their use. Please read and comply with all rules in the Season Ticket, otherwise you will be asked to leave the lake.

Disabled Fishing Platforms Update


Huish Bridge


The new replacement fishing platforms for disabled anglers have finally been completed. These have been provided by the River Project initiative organised by Langport Town Council.

The original platforms at the top of Cocklemoor were removed to make way for the boating pontoon.

The new platforms are now a little further down Cocklemoor, opposite Stacey's Court car park.

​In addition, there is also a new disabled anglers' fishing platform at Huish Bridge at the upstream end of Langport.


I know even able-bodied anglers will want to fish from these platforms, at times, but if a disabled angler arrives to fish, please vacate the platform for them without argument!

New Angling Trust Website!

The Angling Trust have created a new website with all sorts of videos and information to entertain us during the coronavirus lockdown.



If you have never fished rivers before, try fishing the Parrett this season. There's loads of fish along the whole length (about 7 miles if you include the SLAC waters) and you will have it all to yourself; you probably won't see another angler all day. It really can be peaceful fishing out in the countryside! Give it a go!!!
