E-mail sent by John Cheyne, Sunday, 4th March 2018 @ 11:06am

Hi All,

Just a quick reminder that if you have not yet renewed your membership to the Lure Anglers Canal Club, then you can no longer fish our waters, as the new season started on March 1st.

If you haven't got around to reneweing yet then click the link below, and join up now. Despite the fact we have added yet more fishing with our new Hatton Locks stretch, the membership fee remains the same at just £20 per year ! We have said it before and we will say it again....membership of the LACC is the best value purchase you can ever make...A years worth of fantastic fishing on over 30 miles of canal for the same price as three packs of soft baits. It would be mad NOT to join.

E-mail sent by John Cheyne, Thursday, 15th February 2018 @ 8:43am

Dear Member,

To help to ensure a succesful end to our 2017/18 season, we have decided to close our Lowsonforf stretch to fishing between now and the last match of ther Pairs League/AGM on 24th February. We would ask that members fish our other waters during this period. 

I would remind you that if you would like to enter the final match of the pairs league or attend the AGM then you can register online HERE

If you still haven't renewed your membership for the 2018/19 season then you can also do that HERE

We would also remind all members that when fishing at the marina at Wootten Wawen that utmost care must be taken to avoid hitting boats and ropes with lures. If you do manage to hook a boat or a rope, please contact the marina staff who will give you access to retreive your lure, they have had a number of issues with staff and customers injuring themsleves on lures stuck in ropes and will be grateful that you have asked to retrieve your lure.

Christmas Fish-In Cancelled

Posted by John Cheyne, Friday, 15th December 2017 @ 5:09pm

  • Christmas Fish-In Cancelled
    Unfortunately due to ice on the canal, towpath and surrounding roads we have taken the decision to cancel the Christmas Fish-In tomorrow. The committee are discussing the possibility of a new date.




Sign up for our Fabulous Christmas Fish-in

E-mail sent by John Cheyne, Tuesday, 28th November 2017 @ 9:50am

Every Christmas we hold a fun fish-in and get together for all members. This year it will be held on December 16th at Lowsonford. We will park and meet up at the Village Hall and cook up some Bacon Butties and make coffee and tea for arrival in the morning....



FULL
 DETAILS AND SIGN UP HERE


At 9.00am the names of everyone who attends will be put in a hat and teams of two will be drawn. We will then all go off and fish the canal until around 2.30pm. This will be a fun, informal match, where competitors are encouraged to chat and share help and advice. Inexperienced members are encouraged to attend.

We will then have a festive buffet when the fish-in comes to a conclusion in the afternoon. Hopefully some nice warm mince pies and nibbles will go down well.

Traditionally we ask everyone to bring along a 'secret santa' lure fishing related present worth around £10 wrapped up in xmas paper. Then at the end of the match everyone takes turns in choosing a secret present from the pile.

LACC Newsletter Autumn 2017

E-mail sent by John Cheyne, Wednesday, 18th October 2017 @ 12:46pm

Dear Member,

With boat traffic on the canals now slowing down and the perch and zander looking to get some nosh inside them ahead of the winter, now is the perfect time, to be getting out and casting a line on LACC waters.

In the last few weeks we have held some really succesful competitions.

Pairs League: First off was the 3rd round of the Pairs League which was fished at Warwick and produced a win for our Chairman and Secretary, John Cheyne and Steve Wilson, who bagged a massive 784cm final total, that was made up predominantly of good sized perch over 25cm. That pushed "The Worcester Wanglers" up to 3rd in the league behind "Team No Name" (Vidar  Thomassen and Alan Brown) and "The Canalmasters" (Richard Haines and Mike McGuire). Due to clashes with other events and the need to have more time to finish the Matchplay Championship, we have taken the decision to move the dates of the final two Pairs League Matches. They will now be as follows:

Round 4 - 13th January (venue to be confirmed)
Round 5 (and AGM) - 24th February - Lowsonford on the South Stratford Canal


Autumn Colours on the canal for the last pairs match..That's Steve Wilson in the distance !

Individual Championships

Our first ever Individual Championships were held on October 8th and provided some fantastic fishing, particularly for those willing to do a bit of walking ! LACC Pin Up Boy and "King of the Selfie" Richard Haines, put everyone to the sword and won handsomely with 18 fish for 450cm in total. The average size of the fish was excellent with plenty of perch over 30cm in his winning haul. The ever consistent Steve Wilson was 2nd and Alan Brown was 3rd from a field of 21 anglers.

Richard Haines picks up the stunning Kingfisher Trophy after winning the Individual Champs

Specimen Challenge:

Another new event for the club was the Specimen Challenge where teams of two anglers had the opportunity to rove right along all 26 miles of our canals over a 9 hour period trying to catch the two biggest perch and two biggest zander they could find. We all met up that the Leopard Pub in Bishops Tachbrook and then drove off in pairs to our chosen destinations to hunt for monsters. While there were a couple of tales of very big fish lost, no absolute beasts were caught but Dave Burgess and Tom Andrews netted two cracking zeds of 48cm and 59cm plus two chunky perch of 31cm and 33cm to take the victory. As we chatted, drank and enjoyed the buffet at the end of the match in The Leopard, everyone agreed that it was a great format for a comp and so we will be holding this again next year.

Christmas Get Together:  December 16th 2017

Every Christmas we hold a fun fish-in and get together for all members. This year it will be held on December 16th at Lowsonford. Our intention is to hire the Village Hall and cook up some Bacon Butties for arrival in the morning and then put on a festive buffet when the fish-in comes to a conclusion in the afternoon. Traditionally we ask everyone to bring along a 'secret santa' lure fishing related present worth around £10 wrapped up in xmas paper. Then at the end of the match everyone takes turns in choosing a secret present from the pile.


Make sure you get along to our Christmas get together on December 16th
