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

On checking the printed fixture sheet that goes in the permit i have found other errors so all permits issued up to receipt 6895 will have mistakes on the dates & fixtures, sorry for the confusion. The fixtures on this web page are the correct ones.
Some have July 29th & it should be 25th July
The Gate opening & closing times from July & August will be opening at 6-00am & closing at 9pm or later , as the nights get darker this closing time will alter, I know it says dawn to dusk on the permits but this is not possible due to restrictions from Wharncliffe Estates & it also stops Poachers getting to the dam with their vehicles
These guidelines have been produced by the Angling Trust in our capacity as the recognised national governing body for all forms of recreational fishing in England. They have been drawn up following extensive dialogue with relevant Government departments and our colleagues in the Environment Agency to help anglers, fishery owners and managers to better understand what is permissible at the current time.
We have updated our guidelines to take account of the changes that have taken place as part of Step 3 of the government’s roadmap, which came into force on May 17th and will be valid until Step 4 (no earlier than June 21st). As angling has been fully operational from March 29th, the only matters of substance for the majority of our sport are concerned with spectators, car sharing, hospitality and overnight stays in formal accommodation.
Spectators are now permitted at competitions and angling events and shows, both indoors and outdoors, but they should maintain social distancing and must adhere to social gathering limits (groups of up to 30 outdoors and groups of up to six people/made up of two households indoors. Multiple groups of spectators are permitted.)
Car sharing is permitted for sport and physical activity. The guidance for safer travel should be followed.
Angling Clubhouses including those that serve food and drink can now open. Outdoor hospitality including club barbecues are now permitted although groups are limited to 30. The guidance on hospitality settings should be followed.
Holiday venues may now reopen meaning that angling sites providing onsite accommodation are free to take bookings from May 17th and anglers can organise their own accommodation for fishing trips.
With the exception of the above, the remainder of the Angling Trust guidelines remain in place.
Please refer to both the government guidance and the helpful Sport England FAQs for further information.
As the Forestry Contractors will be coming back during the year Wharncliffe Estates insist that the gate must be closed at night. For July & August the gate will be open at 6-00am & closed at 9.00pm 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.
The Annual General meeting in October has had to be cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic, if anyone has any issues they want to raise that they would have brought up at the A.G.M. send them to me by e-mail & we will discuss them when we can. Due to the few weeks we were shut early in the season & the forestry work due in October the fees for membership in 2021 will remain the same, we were looking at raising them before the Pandemic but feel that by leaving them the same this will compensate the disruption.
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)
