Llantrythid Lake
Friday 3 June 2016

The Lake will open to Club Members on 16th June 2016. Night Group Members are permitted to fish this water in dark hours, but due to the very limited parking will only be permitted to a 24 hour session at any time. Please book with the Head Bailiff in advance as per NFG Rules.
·         The gate at the track entrance by the farm has a club lock on it along with 2 other locks. Please ensure you lock the gate behind you when entering or leaving the site. Please also be considerate of the residents by the entrance to the track and keep all noise down to a minimum - switch car radio's ect off before getting out to unlock the gate. This gate has 3 locks on it, each of which opens the gate, obviously use the GAC one.
·         Parking is very limited and is on a first come, first served basis. The maximum number of cars allowed in the lakeside car park is 6. If members car share, this would help.
·         If the new Car Park has reached its 6 car limit when you visit, members can drop their gear at the pond, drive up to the old car park, then walking down to the pond. You may then at the end of your fishing session, return to the pond with your vehicle to collect your gear.
·         Lock all gates at all times.
·         Under no circumstances are vehicles permitted to go through the gate leading to the pond.
·         The Toilet facility will have a Club lock on it and is for members usage.
·         Parking on the trackway is not permitted at any time.
·         Day Shelters and Bivvies are to be set up on the bank opposite the Car Park and not on the Car Park bank for the time being. This is because Grass seed has been planted on the Car Park Bank and we would like to let it get established before allowing shelters to be erected on it.
·         Young Trees have been planted around the pond, please do not cut down or break off any foliage.
·         When there are Club organised events on this pond, due to parking restrictions, we will have to close the pond for these events. These will be advertised on the Club Web site in advance.

There is a strict speed limit of 5mph on the track down to the lake. Be aware that there are livestock in the field that leads down to the car park and they are sometimes reluctant to move from the track! Take extreme care.

The Club has spent a huge amount of Money to get this lake to the standard it now is, so please look after the facility and enjoy the Fishing.

2016 Charity Event - Treoes. 
Sunday 12 June 2016

This year's 48 hour Charity event will be held on Treoes Pond from midday Friday 1st July to 4pm Sunday 3rd of July. During these times the pond is closed for general fishing. All club members are welcome to come and support the event, which will mean the  Chairman will fleece you of all your change and supply you with raffle tickets in exchange. If anyone has any raffle prizes they would like to donate, then please by all means bring them along. 

There is one place available, which if any member would like to take part, please contact the head Bailiff. As this place is short notice, we would be happy to accept a donation.

Llantrythid Works Update.
Tuesday 3 May 2016

The Carpark base is now in and works are progressing well. The Car Park bank is being widened and a pathway will be constructed around the pond to further better access for members. The pegs will be stone based with shutter boards in front. There will be Wheelchair accessible pegs at the closest point to the Car park.

There will be around 30 pegs that will suit day shelters and bivvies.

The works will include re- seeding the Grass banks once the construction works are completed and further re-planting works will progress, so with this in mind, the proposed date to re-open Llantrythid will be Monday June 16th.
Further updates will be published as we get nearer the opening date and the potential of this water will be discussed at the AGM.
