The aims of the Club’s Angling Section are to promote the sport of fishing in a competitive environment whilst monitoring and preserving all fish stocks, in particular endangered species, and to enjoy the fruits of our labours at the table.
A new standard has been set in the preservation of fish stocks with the implementation of “Species Fishing” to our competition rules. This has created a completely new approach with anglers having to apply greater skills in aiming to catch fewer fish over a wide range of species. The result has proved to be a benevolent approach to our fish stocks and an escalating challenge to anglers to diversify and aim to bring in a greater variety in place of quantity. The “CATCH” word is conservation.
Fishing Clinics on “Success” have seen a number of enthusiastic new faces extending their fishing skills each season. These monthly trips on “Success” are a privileged approach made by the Club through the Section to improve new members’ interests and skills in Angling both inshore and offshore.
Annual programs of monthly weekend, mid-week and social fishing activities are scheduled. Christmas Party, Seafood Barbecue, and a wind up Trophy Presentation Dinner complete a very stimulating season.
Well-attended Section meetings with the occasional guest speaker are held on the first Tuesday of the month at 19:30hrs; newcomers are always very welcome.
Enquiries are welcome and should be directed to the Angling Vice Captain Bob Litster.
