    Kenzaki problem

    Mick, give this guy a call Contact details are Gary Allner on 07944101577 Lives in Wallisdown He replaced a reel seat on one of my rods a year ago and it was a super job and very reasonable. I think he does rod repairs from the local shops so could be the guy others have mentioned.
  2. Give Frank a call Neil, I am only the message boy

    Saturday numbers

    As a starting point I would suggest looking at the chart/plotter for the 100ft contour from St. Catherine's point Westward Don't forget that drawing a line from St Catherine's through the Isle of Wight to West Cowes/Southampton anything westward is in club waters for records & comps etc. Dave

    Wessex AT Specimen Weights

    Just to update this, I have now produced a list of specimen fish going back to 2012 to end of June this year. The results are on two pages so at least you can read them without a magnifying glass. It is surprising that some of the higher numbers of fish caught are where people are saying they are scarce There are some obvious scarce species. Hope it is of interest to some Dave Specimen Records.pdf

    Wessex AT Specimen Weights

    Hi Stuie A discussion took place at the meeting and it was suggested that Tope be reduced by 5kg this was not my suggestion however many at the meeting agreed that you should have at least some chance of catching a 100% specimen but over the last 4.5yrs no one has caught a 100% Tope. To everyone I have updated Charlie's spreadsheet, which was published last year, on fish caught since 2015 to June this year, I have added 2018 + 6 months of this year (2019 figures on based on the 2019 specimen size list) If you look at this list against the Wessex Specimen list for 2019 you can make up your own minds. When you view the sheet it will be sideways, so if you look on the pdf menu you should see a heading View, click on this and a rotate menu comes up click on anti-clockwise and you should see it normally unless you want to print it out Specimen Fish caught.pdf
  7. In the Wessex area of the Angling Trust, Hampshire think that some of the specimen weights are unfair and would like some changes and maybe break away and have their own area of specimen weights. So we in the Dorset are have a golden opportunity to get any amendments to our area. It was suggested that we get Tope reduced to 40lbs from 45lbs if any club member has any other suggestions for change on any species I need to know before 18th July Also does anyone have any thoughts about Hampshire having their own area weights or should they stay with us? I have attached the current listing. Specimen Weights 2019.pdf

  12. 2018 UK Water Related Fatalities Published ‘Cautious optimism’ as the trend towards a reduction of deaths in water continues. The most recent figures from the National Water Safety Forum Water Incident Database (WAID) show that in 2018, 263 people lost their lives in accidental drownings in the UK. Despite a small increase in the number of drownings since 2017 the overall trends suggest reason for ‘cautious optimism’. Deaths from accidental drowning have fallen in the three years since the National Drowning Prevention Strategy was launched. However the figure show a rise in the number of suicides in water. In 2018, as in previous years, men are disproportionately represented in the statistics, with 230 males dying in fatal drowning incidents in the UK. River and beaches continue to be the most common locations for fatal drowning incidents. Last year, 74 people drowned in rivers and 73 on or near beaches. Chairman of National Water Safety Forum, George Rawlinson,said: “We are past the three year mark of the National Drowning Prevention Strategy and it is clear that members of the National Water Safety Forum and many other organisations are making good progress throughout the country to keep people informed of the risks, and working together to prevent drowning. “The overall reduction over the three years is a good indicator that our efforts are paying off and fewer people and families are affected by drowning, but there remains much to be done in order to meet the collective ambition of a future without drowning.” WAID compiles statistics from across the UK from a number of sources including inquests, and breaks these down into deaths by activity, age, location type and geography, to give those working in prevention a clearer idea of where to target interventions. A full copy of the UK Annual Fatal Incident Report for 2018 can be viewed at: www.nationalwatersafety.org.uk/waid/reports-and-data/
