Gate open in January at 7am Closed at 4-00pm Closing times will alter as the nights get lighter.
At the end of October we transferred approximately 270Lb of 8 to 10 inch Roach from the Carp Side to the Silver Side & put 500 Lb of small Roach into the inlet that feeds the Dam, when they get bigger we will put them in the Carp Side, unfortunately the Contractor got a hole in his net so we could not get as many as we should have got. On 15th November we put Carp at 3Lb to 4lb approximately totalling 584Lb into the Carp Side & 150Lb of Crucian Carp 6 to 8 inch into the Silver Side the total cost was £4000.
The far bank on the River side of the Carp Side has been repaired by the contractor ably assisted by Andy Glover, Steve Thickett all week, Rob Ranby for a few days Billy Clements ,John Pringle & Chris Glover when they could, thanks to all & anyone i have forgot, also they have took the trees out that were overhanging the Silver Side, before they fell in the water. The new bank may require some shuttering in the future but all the metal work, old sheeting & old logs that were in the edge have been removed so it should be easier to do as there are no obstructions. The work took 5 Days in total, grass seed will be put on the soil shortly. Thanks to all involved for their hard work.
All Anglers must have their permits on them & these must be the new 20243/24 permits, anyone without a permit or with last years will be asked to leave as they are trespassing & are not covered by the Clubs Insurance.
The cost of membership for 2024 is the same as last year Full Members £40. Ladies, Oaps, Disabled £25. Juniors £10. The books will be open in March 2024
Juniors do not pay until they are 13 Years old, before this age they are classed as a Honorary Junior but to comply with the Insurance they must be accompanied by an Adult member.
The Tin Mill Lane has been repaired at a cost of £700 to the club, please do not speed as this could disturb the surface until it gets bedded down, we are pleased to announce that the rent we pay to Wharncliffe Estates has been agreed for the next five years, the Forestry Contractors have promised to repair the Road to Tin Mill as soon as possible when the weather allows them.
Carp Match Sunday 28th August 2022 produced a new Individual Weight record of 140Lb 11oz caught by Mark Maloney & most of the next four weights would have won the Carp match normally.

Work has finished on the Gabion removals & the improvements on the River, most of the work has been undone by the floods. Five New Islands have been put in the Carp Side at Tin Mill Dam on Friday 14th May, this offers the fish spawning areas & protection from Cormorants, the Environment Agency is helping fund this project with a grant that is made available from the Licence fee that Anglers pay. We thank them for this & we also have later in the year plans to improve the River making it more natural
If anyone loses any tackle at Tin Mill Dam either through rods or poles getting pulled into the Dam , or left by mistake, please contact the Secretary or ask the Bailiffs if they have been handed in , as sometimes they are retrieved by other anglers. The Road to Tin Mill has also had all the potholes filled in, please keep to a reasonable speed. When casting to the Islands please be aware that there is mesh below them for the fish to spawn & if you catch this you will possibly lose your hook. Thanks to Andy Glover, Steve Thickett, Scott Taylor, Darren Brown & Karl Carnegie for their hard work in assisting the contractors as it would have taken hours more without their help.
Please do not put rubbish in the metal bins at Tin Mill these are for the use of the bailiffs, & used for burning not rubbish, please take your rubbish home
As the Forestry Contractors will be coming back during the year Wharncliffe Estates insist that the gate must be closed at nigh. it will be no use ringing me as i do not have access to the combination for the gate, times for the opening & closing of the gate in future months will be put on this site & on the gate. Sorry for any problems this may cause. As I said the Contractors will be returning throughout the year to thin the trees but this will not affect our fishery or Anglers.
All Anglers must read the rules before fishing , also all fish must be returned to the waters, anyone caught killing fish will be prosecuted, members must have their membership books with them before fishing the Clubs waters.
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)
