THE RIVER AERON’S ONLY ANGLING CLUB
Bank maintenance Feb 2024
The Club held a bank maintenance day on 24th February which concentrated on the town pools. The hedge bordering the leet was cut to aid back casting, bank verges and paths were cleared, litter collected, the steps to the bottom pool cleared and the flagstone steps into Pengarreg Pool were removed and reset as they were sloping and dangerous, particularly when wet. A large tree remains stuck in the Bottom Pool but the water level was too high to safely remove it at this time - when the water level drops it will be cut up and removed. Food and drinks were held after the session at the Hive for the Six Nations rugby Ireland v Wales. Thanks to all who attended and contributed.
Guest Permit week
The Club will again hold a guest permit week in June (10-16th) when members can bring
a guest to fish with them on the Aeron, as a trial, for free. Note that members have
to be present with the guest at all times and the guest must possess the relevant
rod licence - day, week and season options are available from the Environment Agency.
As this may increase numbers fishing the town pools, please be sensitive to the numbers present and rotate locations so everyone can have a go.
Club lake competition dates
All Club lake competition dates have been set and are now visible in the Calendar on this site. The Club is again very grateful to the sponsors of these events (The Hive, Pont Steffan Dental Practice and Y Seler) who provide the prizes for first, second and third places but also a prize for the biggest fish caught in each competition. If interested in competing, please contact the Lake Secretary.
