Welcome to Ashfield Angling Club Newsletter Page


The club has undergone quite a bit of change in the past few months and we hope that you will start to see the benefits of this and the club can move forward in the right direction. We recognise that we need to keep the membership more informed about the things that are going on behind the scenes in YOUR club, especially for those that do not use Facebook. We are trying to become a more open, transparent and approachable club, so that the membership feels confident about the future and can get on with what we are all here for, some great fishing. This newsletter will be sent out every month and will contain such things as committee meeting updates, latest news, bailiff reports, working party details and of course, catch reports and photos. If you have any suggestions for future newsletters please send them in or post them on our Facebook page.

VERY IMPORTANT KHV NOTICE- ITS NOW AT COTGRAVE!!!

We have taken advice from the Environment Agency and due to the recent local KHV outbreaks in Leicestershire and South Yorkshire we will be banning the use of keep nets from all of our still waters until further notice. All landing nets, weigh slings, carp sacks etc. must be dry before being placed in to the water, preferably via sunlight. Please also be aware that damp stink bags can also carry the disease. It will be treated as a very serious offence should this restriction be broken due to the danger presented to the health of our fish stock. Thank you for your understanding, hopefully we will be back to normality in the near future.
Koi herpesvirus (KHV) is a disease that affects all varieties of carp, is highly contagious and may cause up to 100% mortality. It can be transmitted by fish to fish contact and also via angling equipment and contaminated water. Signs to look out for include lethargy, damaged gills, sunken eyes, flaky skin mucus. If you see any carp displaying these symptoms please contact a bailiff or committee member asap.

Important Members Notice

Notice to members: Please ensure that you have a valid EA Rod licence. Unfortunately we have had to inform a member that they have been dismissed from the club after they were caught fishing without a valid licence. This reflects directly on the reputation of our club and is therefore treated as a serious breach of club rules.
