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.

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.
