Member Simon Beal has shared a photo of a stunning Ghost Carp that he caught on Lizzies
lake at Kilworth Sticks recently
It weighed in at 15lb 7oz and Simon says it fought like a fish twice it's size!! It was taken on
a particle bait over a bed of sweetcorn.
Sadly we have to report the loss of one of our Members Barry Lineker who passed away on
Sunday afternoon. Condolences to all of his family and friends at this sad time.
R.I.P Barry from the committee and all of our members.

Police Warning Update
We have been told of another incident with Pole sections encroaching onto the road behind
Frisby Complex. It has been reported that this happened with someone fishing on peg 15 or 16 on Jasons lake.
Apparently a pole was pushed through the hedge, onto the road and was smashed by a van travelling
by. Needless to say the van driver was not very happy.
It is imperative that you DO NOT let your Pole, or any other equipment for that matter, Pass the
hedge. It must stop BEFORE it reaches the border of our property.
If you are not sure CHECK before you start fishing.
Partners Match Venue Change
Due to popular demand the Husband & Wife/Partners Match scheduled for 19th August has
been switched from Sanctuary lake to Jasons lake. So please be aware that Jasons will be closed to all other
members from 11am until 6pm on Saturday 19th August.
We have had a warning from the Police that a cyclist had to swerve to avoid a Pole that had
been pushed through the hedge at Frisby. This happened last week and could only have been by caused by someone
fishing on pegs 21, 22 or possibly 23 on Colver.
It hasn't been alleged that this was done deliberately, but the police have told us that we, and
any individual concerned, would be libel for any accident caused by anything (i.e. a Pole section) protruding
our boundary fence.
So please be aware that when Pole fishing on these pegs you will have to break down the Pole
before the edge of our boundary is reached.
The Pole Roller that was found behind Peg 17 on Colver has been claimed and is now with its
rightful owner .
