Anyone found swearing or abusing the Bailiffs or members of the Committee will be liable to have their membership withdrawn , the Bailiffs do a very good job & work very hard to keep the fishery tidy, they are volunteers & deserve the respect of all the members.
The Bailiffs are all volunteers & can not be expected to be able to patrol all the Clubs waters all of the time, if anyone sees anything suspicious let the Bailiffs know if they are about or let me know by contacting me on e-mail or by phone all my information is in the membership book

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
The Gate opening in March will be opening at 6-00 to 7closing at, 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
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)
