Sport - Angling: Weather sees wipeout on banks


By Darren Reed

The last seven days has been virtually written off as anglers finally became victims to the wintry weather.

There was a virtual wipeout due to the conditions and even more so because of the roads to and from the venues were deemed unfit to travel to get to the required destinations.

Hopefully this weekend may see some of the hardcore anglers return to the bank as the weather starts to improve and the white stuff finally starts to disappear.

The forecast is for the weather to turn slightly milder over the weekend.

Club news

The transition of KLAA to a company, limited by guarantee, is progressing well following the vote to progress to a corporate conversion at a special general meeting, held last October.

The KLAA is also well on target to meet the sale of tickets for tApril 1, and the opening of the 2013/14 season.

Lynn Angling Association Limited will have the same objectives that have kept angling in The Fens alive and will be much better placed to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Other news

It is with regret we announce the death of Jeff Harrod.

Jeff, who was a stalwart at Tottenhill pits, sadly passed away last week.

Many memories of tales by the water will be sadly missed and all of our thoughts are with Jeff’s wife Mona and his family at this very sad time.

n Lynn Pike Anglers Club has pulled off a coup for its meeting on Wednesday.

The club has secured the services of Stephen Harper – author and chronicler of Broadland pike – for a rare appearance as guest speaker.

As well as writing and designing some of the finest angling books from his base near Dereham, Harper has also caught his fair share of specimens including pike to more than the iconic 30lbs mark.

So it might just turn out to be an interesting evening at the William Burt Club, West Winch, on Wednesday, starting at 7.30pm.

All are welcome to attend the talk.
