Local club, Stoke Angling Association, invited me to attend a presentation, at the Oncology Department at Yeovil District
Hospital, of a cheque for £525.
The money was raised by Stoke through their matches during the year; we fished two matches with them, contributing through our match fees. We also made a donation to their fund from our 2017 Christmas & Memorial match.

The match will be held on Saturday 8th December on the Town sections on the River Parrett. If it's unfishable, due to previous heavy rain, the match will be fished at the Viaduct Fishery at Somerton, as a silvers match.
Breakfast will be served from 7.30am at the Langport Arms Hotel followed by the Draw at 8.30am. Fish from 10.00am to 3.00pm.
The work to add smaller-mesh fencing wire to the existing otter fence has now been completed.
The otter did get in again under one of the gates in the fence. This has now been fixed and we don't expect him to find his way in again. Regular checks will be made on the fence to maintain its effectiveness.
We now have a page on Facebook:
