Late match booking on Dyke
15 June 2019Due to a late venue change for the first NDPF open match of the season, the Power Station and Fletchers stretches are almost fully reserved for tomorrow, Sunday 16th June.
Full details of all match bookings are available, as usual, on the Match Calendar.
New season draws near
13 June 2019Not long to go now until the river season opens at midnight Saturday into Sunday this weekend.
It's been a wet week (you may have noticed) so levels will be high meaning great care should be taken.
I've just heard on the radio that Notts has had 150% of its normal June rainfall in the past 3 days alone!
Keep safe and have a great season - the weather will improve............promise.
Outstanding fees - no card, no fish!
4 June 2019At the time of writing, there's a large number of online applicants who are still to pay their membership fees.
Please note that you must be in receipt of a valid membership card to able to fish our waters so don't delay, pay today.
Only 11 days until the Glorious 16th.
26 May 2019
Not long until the 16th.
Less than 3 weeks to go until the start of the river season so a good time to join up or renew your Federation membership.
There's always a late rush in June so sign-up now to ensure that your membership's in place for the Glorious 16th.
Crankley goes to Hollywood.
Alfie Naylor, bailiff and piscator extraordinaire, will be filming a start of season feature on our Crankley fishery on the 16th and 17th June.
As a result, pegs 1 to 3 on Crankley will not be available on those dates having been reserved by Alfie with permission from the Committee.
We're very pleased to announce that Farndon Parish Council have installed a CCTV system covering Long Lane Farndon which will, hopefully, deter the poachers, fly-tippers and other ne'er do wells who frequent the area.
With regard to poaching and illegal fishing, this will add to our armoury which includes more proactive bailiffing and a policy of always reporting offenders to the Police.
Membership opens with a bang!
3 May 2019Just a couple of days into the new Federation year and we've already received more than 150 Online applications.
It's early days yet but it looks like demand for membership will, again, be very high this year though with prices being held and the, already fantastic, fishing improving year-on-year, it's hardly surprising.
Anglers from outside the Newark area seeking Associate membership are advised to apply promptly to avoid disappointment as a cap on the total number of Associate members will, again, be applied this year.
