Hi Danglers.....long time no see......I know it's still a bit early in the year, but thought I would just let everyone know that I will be running an autumn league on the Droitwich canal at the Briskers Fishery Hawford sections. I have spoken to the Worcester and D. U. A. A. to get their dates and have organised around them. Draws will be as last year at the Mill House Caravan site - at Hawford, with 5 matches out of 6 to count. Every angler (as usual) will get lots of space during the league ensuring maximum chances of lots of sport from shoals of Roach, Rudd, Perch, Bleak, an increasing head of Chublets, Dace, Eels and of course the resident skimmers and Bream. Can the match record be broken this year ? It stands at 43lb, and we have come close a few times with several 30 and 20lb weights, and dozens of 10 plus pound nets. The Bream now average 3lb with lots over 4 and some now over 5lb ! Like all canals in the autumn, fishing can take some thought, but the fish are in the canal in large numbers. Dates for the league will be 6th/20th October, 3rd/17th November and 1st/15th December. Entry to the league costs £20, payable by no later than Friday 27th September, giving 1 week to sort out sections and pegs for yours truly. Fishery rules apply, No Fishmeal/Pellets, Barbless hooks, no Blood/Joker.

Tim Jones Challenge – the Worcester Ring.

On Saturday 29th June 2024, there

will be a Canoe / Kayak event.

Boats will be leaving the centre of Worcester between 9 and 10, then travelling down to Diglis, up the W&B canals to Hanbury, left on to the Droitwich canals then back on the Severn.  We are planning to portage on the river left side (East bank) at Diglis, getting off at the muddy area just before the footbridge.

The fastest crews will complete the race in about 3 hours with the slowest taking about 8 hours.

WDUAA v YORK

  SUNDAY 21ST JULY, 2024 AIRE AND CALDER CANAL,

POLLINGTON.

 

The Annual Contest between WDUAA and YORK continues this year, with the match taking place on the Aire and Calder Canal, at Pollington.

This year, the match will be contested by York and WDUAA.

We have received a letter from the Canal and Rivers Trust representing some of the residents of Rushton Court who’s flats and apartments back on to the Worcester & Birmingham canal between Bridge 2 (Mill Street) and Bridge 3 (Sidbury).

They wished to raise their concerns over the number of anglers that appear to be urinating in the hedge row with no consideration for the properties and residents that live in them on the opposite side of the canal.


We politely request that all anglers representing the WDUAA please observe the comments and observe due consideration when answering a call of nature in such residential areas.


Many thanks for your co-operation.


Ray Ravenall - Chairman WDUAA.
