As with all fisheries the Clubs Waters are closed until further notice, i intend to offer a reduction on next years permits or a refund based on months lost to all those that have already purchased permits for this season, please let me have your views, the shortage of money due to no fishing will affect what if anything we can do in the future as regards, repairs to footpaths, fish stocking, peg replacement it all depends how long we are closed.
Angling Trust LETS BE CLEAR .THE LOCKDOWN MEANS NO FISHING. WE WILL SEEK CLARIFICATION AS TO WHETHER FISHING IS AN ALLOWED FORM OF EXERCISE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. BUT FOR NOW WE CANT LEAVE OUR HOMES FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE REASONS STATED BY THE GOVERNMENT.
The Club has a Pond called Tin Mill Dam & a stretch of the River Don about 1½ miles long , the Dam & River are near to Deepcar, Sheffield. South Yorkshire.
The Dam is in two halves the first part you come to is the Carp Pond & contains mainly Carp some over 20Lbs average fish caught is over 6Lbs, but also has Roach, Bream, Chub, Gudgeon, Perch & other species in it. the far dam is what we call the Silver fish side & contains mainly Silver Fish, Roach, Bream, Small Carp, Crucian Carp, Tench, Perch, Chub & other Species.
The River is ideal for Fly Fishing in some stretches & for Coarse fishing in other areas it contains Barbel, Chub, Dace, Trout,Grayling, Perch, Roach & other species, the Club has spent some £10,000 plus on the stocking of the River in the past. The stretch of River runs from Deepcar to the back of Bramalls Ponds (Near Thurgoland)
