Weed cut!

Good afternoon everyone, we will be carrying out weed cutting and tree trimming on the following swims tomorrow evening Thursday 11th July. Peg numbers 48, 48a and hopefully 47 up to 41. Then Saturday and Sunday morning we will be carrying out maintenance and weed cutting in the pegs upstream of 37a up to 23. Please be ready to move if you have chosen these swims to fish as we require. Better still would be to avoid the swims numbered. The committee appreciate your co-operation whilst we do our best to combat the weed growth. 

Nearly there……

The new season is nearly here and,of course, it’s going to rain for most of the week. However, we do need the water and it might just liven the river up a bit.

Lead as always by Dave Lyne there has has been a lot of work going on down on the river. We have created new sims, cleared up old ones, cut the streamer weed and repaired fences and stiles. Thanks must go to Dave and all the other members who have squeezed in to their wetsuits and chest waders to keep the river in such good condition.

We have also strimmed the bank down on our new stretch of the Thames at Nuneham Courtenay and are looking forward to fishing there and finding out what might be lurking in the depths. Please remember that if you would like to fish there it is essential that you use the booking system which is explained in the sheet that you receive with your permit.

Christmas Chub

Dave Lyne and Ian Horrocks had a few hours on the river on Christmas Eve (Time off for good behaviour?)

Dave was catching small fish fish all morning from various pegs in the Prebendal field and Ian had four chub – three around a pound and a half each and then this one from peg 52.  5lb 30z and in super winter condition.

Dave went back for a couple of hours on Boxing Day and had another one off peg 48.  4lb 3oz.

Last work party and next Open match on Sunday September 17th

Good morning everyone.

Our latest work party was again well supported and successful. We managed to trim all the trees we needed out of anglers’ way below the Esso garage with the help of our new work boat, courtesy of the Thames Water pollution fine!

Ian skippered for the morning and Robin was his mate above deck. Baring a couple of near capsizes when nature called, all went off without major incident, so it’s a massive Thanks to all those who attended. These mornings are always productive and are an essential part of keeping our swims open, so if anglers help put a little back we can all keep fishing the Thame.

Also just to remind everyone of this Sunday September 17th is our next open. As usual all water is closed.

Draw at 7.30am in Priest End, near the church in Thame, fish 8.30 til 1.30. £5 pools £3 peg fee and all anglers are welcome to join us.

Please book in with myself 01844 761185 eves, or with Ian 07821 400435.
