New Year’s Eve Charity event responce
Friday 5 January 2018

On behalf of my daughter Helen Fincham and myself would like to thank you for thinking of Helen and for Rob Crewes-rees, nominating her for your fundraising cause on new years eve.  

We can’t thank you enough for your support and donation of £456 towards Helens wheel drive wheels which will give her a little bit of independence on her own, as she is unable to manually push the wheelchair herself. 

We are ever so grateful to everyone involved.

Best wishes for the new year 

New Year’s Eve Charity event
Tuesday 2 January 2018

Well, another New Year’s Eve Charity event completed. Firstly, and foremost, well done to Claire Giddy, who won the comp with 19lb 8oz and wins this year's free Club License.

New Years Eve Charity Event 2017
Wednesday 27 December 2017
Just a reminder that Treoes will be closed New Years Eve for the annual Charity Event.
Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
Tuesday 12 December 2017

Firstly, and most importantly, the club would like to wish each and every Member a Merry Christmas and a Peaceful and Happy New Year.
No doubt many of us will be waiting patiently for the big man in red to deliver that item of Fishing Tackle that you have hinted about for the last six months.
Over the past 12 months the Club has managed to keep its membership stable, with this year over 800 members joining, which is not only great for the Club financially, but also it does mean on the whole, members are happy with the way the Committee are running the Club.
We have been actively looking at Land for Sale within our area that would be suitable and within our price range to purchase as a potential new water. As yet, the right piece of land has evaded us, but not for want of going out to look at many potential sites. If any Member knows of, or hears of a possible site or better still a Pond or Lake that is available, please do let us know and we will ensure that your lead is followed up. There is a contact list on the web site.
On New Years Eve, the Club is hosting its annual Charity Competition on Treoes Lake, which is open to all Club Members. There are, at the time of posting this message a couple of pegs available. To book a peg, text message 07804 097857. Book in at 8am, fish 9am to 2pm.
We are this year trying to raise funds to assist a young lady from the Bridgend area to purchase a motorised Wheelchair unit. Entry is £5 per Angler and we will also be running a raffle. If anyone has a Raffle Prize they wish to donate, please either bring them along on the day or give them to any Club Official.

If you do venture out over the Xmas period or during the Winter months, please take extra care as the bank sides will be slippery. It is always safer if you go fishing with a friend at this time of year.

Please remember you can now renew your Club License for 2018/19.

So, to everyone, have a great Festive Season and we hope to see you all on the bank sides in 2018.

NRW proposals for new controls on fishing for salmon and sea trout
Wednesday 30 August 2017

NRW proposals for new controls on fishing for salmon and sea trout

After careful consideration of our evidence and wishing to take full account of the views we have received during our engagements with customers and stakeholders, we are now proposing changes to fishing controls to the salmon and sea trout net and rod fisheries.

We would like to make you aware that we have:

Advertised a new Net Limitation Order
Launched a statutory consultation on new byelaws for rod and net fishing

Both processes began on 22 August 17 and runs for 12 weeks.

The proposals include:

Maintaining the same number of net licences in the 13 public salmon and sea trout net fisheries
Making consistent the start and end of the  net fishing seasons:
Shortening the netting season by starting net fisheries no earlier than 1st May
Ending the netting season on the 31st July
Implementing full catch and release fishing on all net and rod fisheries for salmon
Requiring sea trout catch and release in rod fisheries on vulnerable rivers before 1st May
Setting a 60cm maximum size limit for sea trout in rod fisheries
Implementing method restrictions (bait, barbless hooks and trebles) so that released fish have a good chance of survival (Byelaws)

Open access petition
Thursday 17 August 2017

All you may or may not have heard about the access consultation.
I am attaching the details that MTAA are sending around as the heading states we really need as anglers to step up on this one. Access to open water can literary mean your pond. Please go to the link below and even if you do not write then please register on this link.

There will be quite a bit of Noise disruption
Wednesday 19 July 2017

Woman, 21, who thought her neck ache was a result of sleeping in a funny position is left PARALYSED

  • Helen Fincham thought she had a heart attack when her arms went numb
  • When paramedics arrived they asked her to stand - but she then collapsed
  • She has been paralysed ever since but now has regained some movement 
  • Doctors diagnosed her with a neurological condition after months of tests

Helen Fincham, 21, from Bridgend, Wales, assumed her discomfort was down to her having slept in a funny position.
However, by midday she was unable to feel her legs. She thought she had suffered a heart attack when her arms went numb and she struggled to breathe.
When paramedics arrived to her home they asked her to stand - but she collapsed and has been unable to move ever since.
Doctors were left baffled but two months of tests discovered she had a rare neurological condition which caused her spinal cord to become inflamed.

Helen Fincham, 21, from Bridgend, Wales, assumed her discomfort was down to her having slept in a funny position. However, by midday she was unable to feel her legs.
This has left Helen permanently Paralysed from the chest down and wheelchair bound, with restricted movement in her arms and hands. The family are desperately trying to raise money to purchase equipment, including a wheel drive power assist for manual wheelchairs, which alone costs over £5000 in order to give Helen some independence.
GAC have agreed to help support Helen and her family by way of this year’s New Years Eve Charity Fishing Competition.
Many thanks to Club member Rob Crewes-Rees for nominating this very worthy cause.
As usual, this competition will be held on Treoes Pond on New Year’s Eve and is open to all Club Members. Entry will be £10 per senior Angler and £5 per Junior.
Further details for booking places and timings will be advertised at a later date on the Club Web Site and Facebook page.

River Wye Stretch
Monday 17 July 2017

In recent years there have been a number of unfortunate incidents between GAC fishing club members and people rowing, or training and supervising rowers, on the River Wye between the Rowing Club at Monmouth and Mally Brook Limit. GAC committee has been contacted to help to try and identify possible reasons for these incidents and seek a solution to avoid similar occurrences in future. These incidents reflect badly on both organisations and must cease.
It appears most problems occur because the rowers are facing away from their direction of travel, often working hard upstream to gain momentum, and moving more rapidly downstream with the current, and have little opportunity to see the fisherman’s line and even less opportunity to take avoiding action. When viewed from the river our members are extremely hard to see due partly to the trees and vegetation and partly to the fisherman’s position some distance away from the river edge.
The Rowing Club are aware that when a baited line has been carefully positioned at some distance from the bank at a known swim, the fisherman cannot simply withdraw his line without losing the benefit of his earlier hard work and is therefore, with good reason, reluctant to do it. Given these circumstances it is clear that both groups need to take on board the limiting factors affecting each group and at times of peak activity endeavour to minimise the possibility of confrontation.
Rowing peak times are 0700 to 0800 weekday mornings and 1400 to 1800 weekday afternoons. Weekend peak times are 0800 to 1200 and 1300 to1500 Saturdays. Sunday 0900 to 1100hrs. Issues of disturbance between anglers and the powered metal training boats have also been discussed with the Rowing Club to reducing confrontation.
Any angler who experiences what is believed to be deliberate fouling of fishing lines must make a record of location, time, and any other relevant factors (suggest a photograph)  and report the incident to the Head Bailiff as soon as possible or any Club official. No form of retaliatory action is acceptable.

In order to set up the database in preparation for this changeover would all members** [see below] please submit a photo. Please do this early. ASAP.

Post a GOOD passport size photo ie full face against a white background [saves ink] with your name, permit number and post code on the back. Eg M.Roberts, 17001, CF14 2AU.

If you leave it  till late especially, until March 2018 or after, this could result in significant delays to your application. Please sort this out early as it is a lot of extra work for me and I would like to get it out of the way early
and spread the workload.

Pond closure update
Friday 17 February 2017

Barry Ponds – Sues Pond
The Committee has discussed the predation issue at Sues Pond, Barry, which we feel that not closing the Pond in April as was originally planned, will allow members on the water to deter the Cormorants from feeding on the pond constantly.

Treoes Pond Closure
Treoes Pond will be closed to Members from 1st March 2017 to 31st March 2017 . The Pond will re-open 1st April 2017.

Groes Faen – Bishops Pond.
Friday 10 February 2017

Bishops Pond will be Closed Friday 10th Feb 17 for Maintenance Work.

Members Security on Club Waters
Monday 5 February 2017

On Sunday 05 Feb, one of our Club members/Bailiffs had his van broken into at Pyscodlin Mawr Pond and a great deal of fishing gear was stolen. The member was approached by what he described as Eastern Europeans, who initially asked what time he was fishing to. When the member loaded up his van and returned to the pond for his unhooking mat, the vehicle was broken into and the tackle stolen. We have since been told that another member was approached again by what is described as Eastern Europeans at Groes-Faen ( Bishops Pond) and asked a similar question whilst fishing.
If you are approached by these people, please contact the Head Bailiff immediately, as we believe these individuals are also poaching our waters at night.
The Head Bailiffs contact number is on your Club License. If anyone is offered fishing gear that you think could be stolen, again please let us know.

A small group of people from Bridgend College will be conducting survey work on the Radyr stretch of the Taff this Thursday.  Disruption to angling will be minimal, but members are to be reminded that co-operation with such surveys can only be beneficial to the club and the river, therefore we ask members to be considerate of the work being undertaken.

A message from our club secretary
Wednesday 14 December 2016

As we near the end of another year, which for the Club has been again productive, I thought it would be the right time to reflect on the past 12 months. Obviously the work at Llantrythid was our main focus in 2016, which now completed is providing excellent fishing to members and the fishing we are very sure, will get a lot better as the pond now matures and the stock get used to baits.
Our efforts to improve the fishing on all our still waters over the year have continued and is coming to fruition, with all waters providing species that are getting bigger and better. For instance the 2 stock sizes of Barbel in Carols Pond are really growing on, with fish now getting close to 4lbs, which is great news and they went in at about half a pound each a few years ago. For our Carp Anglers, larger fish seem to be reported from most of our waters, with double figure fish coming out of Treoes, Groes Faen, Llantrythid and both Barry Ponds. The only pond that is seeming to be quiet on the Carp front being Pyscodlin Mawr. Silver fish in all our waters are growing on, which includes the Perch in Treoes, Bream in Llantrythid and Pyscodlin Mawr, Tench from Gribbles and St y Nyll top pond, even the Roach and Rudd seem to be putting on weight generally.
All Club competitions have been very well supported and continue to provide all members with the opportunity to have a bit of competitive fun throughout the year.
2017 will see some work done on St Y Nyll Top pond and some further stocks of Tench and Crucians for a couple of still waters.

I would finally like to on behalf of the Club, wish all our members a peaceful Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year.
