Can someone please confirm that at Stamford Lake if fishing for silver fish match style a forty two inch landing net is required as stated in rules?

Personally I think Stanford lake is superb, unlike possible new member comments I think it is refreshing to have a wilder water with unknown fish species, It is quite refreshing after these commercial puddles with cafe, showers and specialized Bivvy swims and known species, I for one will be joining just for that reason!

A club is only as strong as its current members (not future members) - and the work that they put into it behind the scenes

I agree with Roger 100%. We have 10+ miles of a canal + 2 other lakes. Maybe Possible new member needs to have a look at the other waters we have before knocking the Cinque Sports Angling Society club. But wanting photos of Stanford lake why not take another walk round the lake and take your own photos and repeat the same in a years time then you can judge it yourself

Hi Wayne, yes you can.
roger wrote on 12th April 2019 at 10:02 am:
to possible new member.
I have personally seen how much hard work some members have put in to try and make the new lake fishable.
Obviously, if you joined this great little club, you'd be able to volunteer and get it just as you'd like it.
Maybe we don't want people in our club who do nothing but critsise without knowing the facts.
Stop moaning and either join and help the club get better, or go and join somewhere better suited to you.

Hi, I would like to become a member can I join on the renewal day on Saturday 13th?
Possible new member wrote on 12th April 2019 at 3:05 am:
Maybe it would be good to share some photos of what you have done to the new lake since taking it over.
Commercial bivvi or not this doesn't look like a place that is fish able due to the access restrictions at most swims.
The fact that you have taken over the lake is great but it doesn't look to have had any work done at all...
As mentioned above, maybe some photos from before and some now, this club doesn't seem to publish much about what's going on at any of the waters, maybe a good idea would be a old fashioned forum rather than this chat page, as I've noticed messages seem to get a bit misplaced as others are replied to.
To advertise that you have a new lake is great, but when someone visits it as you advertise it as being open. Maybe you should of held off until more work had been done.
I look forward to hopefully some more info regarding what has been done and whats is in the pipeline.
Maybe you could set up seperate Web pages for each water to give better idea of what each one has to offer.
Remember a club is only as strong as its future members.

Hi Possible New Member. I think you are being a little unfair on the club. The club only just taken over Stanford lake in late 2018 ( mid-sept ).I think the last time the lake last saw a work party some 7 years ago and the work that was done by the club and it's members have done a great job. if you prefer a lake where you can set up a family size bivvy may i suggest looking for a commercial fishery. May i take this point in thanking the Club and it's members for the great work already done and all future work parties

I had a walk around Stanford today and must say I was quite disappointed.

Losts of dead trees etc around and in the lake, and a lot of the swims down steep steps with only a few big enough to put a bivvy on should someone want to.

I know it's a new lake to the club but it needs some serious work relating to trees and swims. I hope to see this get better and I will consider joining but not until then.

Hi John. The rule change went through at the AGM on 15th March - and is with immediate effect
John wrote on 27th March 2019 at 4:20 pm:
I cannot find anything in writing about this amendment to the use of lures along the length of the canal. Can someone clarify this position, I would not like to break and rules when I next pay a visit to the RMC.
Canalman wrote on 26th March 2019 at 11:16 am:
Yes Jackylegs - that is correct

I would like to thank Paul the Balif for his advise today, I managed to catch 3 pike
Jackylegs wrote on 24th March 2019 at 1:34 pm:
Heard that spinning and use of lures is now allowed along the whole strech of the canal as of last week,
Is this true ?
CPAS Secretary wrote on 19th March 2019 at 12:00 pm:
No there is no closed season at Stanford Lake or on our stretches of the canal. But there is a closed season at Beachborough.

Just to let you know. The Society are stocking 25 x common and mirror carp at the row boats station at a Ladies Walk today at approx 11am.
Lee R wrote on 13th March 2019 at 7:45 pm:
Does anyone know what the canal is like in the warmer months for stalking carp and surface fishing for them?
Do they often surface in the warmer months?

If not can I obtain a renewal form electronically?
