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 Winter Closure
Combe Lake is now closed to allow maintenance work to be carried out during the winter.
The Lake re-opens on 1st March 2023.
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
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!!!
I've put the maps of the SLAC waters on the Club Waters page.
