Welcome to Yarm Angling Limited.
A couple of changes have been made to the club championship and golden peg rules.
The P Nicholson Trophy match on Boxing Day will no longer count towards the overall club championship, to bring it into line with the other non-Sunday matches.
The golden peg will not be available for any eligible CLUB match in which less than 10 anglers are fishing. 


NEW LOCKS  AT HARKER'S FARM
As a result of gates being left unlocked at the track down to the stretch at Ken Harker's farm (pegs 1 to 18), and a suspicion that at least some of the walkers and dog walkers know our combination, we are going to replace the combination padlocks there with key-operated padlocks. This change will be done in early January 2019.
The new padlocks will take the ATDAC key.

If you do not already have an ATDAC key and want to fish these pegs, please purchase a key either from the clubhouse or from Darlington or Cleveland Angling Centre shops.

***************************************************************************************

There will not be any increase in membership costs for 2019. However all members should note that the age at which they transition to the rate applicable for pensioners will be increased in future years in line with the State Pension Age as laid out in government legislation.

MAINTENANCE WORK ON YARM AND ATDAC FISHERIES

 Farmers and gamekeepers have reported continuing problems with suspected poaching as well as theft of farm property.

 Whilst we as fishermen enjoy the right to roam the river bank and cast a line, the sight of somebody wandering around without fishing tackle isn’t allowed (our rights are to fish) and can sometimes set alarm bells ringing.

 The legality is that maintenance work including the trimming of trees and clearance of access paths should be agreed with the farmer or landowner prior to any work being carried out. There are also potential implications regarding insurance cover for members acting independently on unapproved maintenance.

 Occasionally there have been reports of members on the river bank who don’t have fishing tackle but they were believed to be in fact carrying out well intentioned maintenance work.

 We do not want to discourage this, far from it, all help is much appreciated. However, this needs to be done properly and the right people informed beforehand of your expected presence and activities.

 Dick Sidgwick Tel 07870680953 and Paul Richmond Tel 07815818030 plan and carry out regular work on the river bank, liaising with the farmers or landowners to ensure that we do not cause them any problems.

To preserve good relations we request anybody planning or wishing to help with work on the river bank to please speak to Dick or Paul beforehand.

All offers of help will be very welcome.
