Newport canal is in process of being dredged, which will clear much of the silted up bottom and tidy the water up.  The work is being carried out by contractors on behalf of Wild Life trust and partners, and is likley to take several weeks with Telford, Lilleshall and our streches bening affected.  Some disruption should be expected during this time, overall the depth and quality of water should be improved.

September

 

The Audco series draws to an end this month and we'd like to thank everyone for supporting the League this season.  It's been well attended and offered varied venues, with some great weights and we've had 6 different winners over the 10 rounds so far!!!!

 

Dave Matson has wrapped up the series again for the 3rd time in a row equalling a feat that Ron Mullinder set a few years back. Well done Dave consistency is key and you've certainly showed that.  The race is on now for the best of the rest and to complete the placings (see series link for more info and league standings).

 

Also anyone wishing to register their interest in the league for next season, should contact Stuart Miles or Bob Pritchard so a place can be reserved for next year.

 

The fishing is far from done though, with many matches on the Newport Canal and SUC sections into the Autumn as well as invitation matches, look back here for further updates.
