CLUB HISTORY


The original club was formed in 1982, mainly as a social club, then re-organised into a Angling club a couple of years later.

Meetings were held at the Trafalgar in the bar or lounge, and annual dinners were held at the Sommerville Hotel, St Aubin or Cote du Nord.

One of the first competitions was held on Victoria Avenue, the winning fish going to Mr M Plain. The story goes that he had cast out in dramatic fashion and got a real birds nest on his reel which took about an hour to untangle. Much to his surprise and those helping him, when he eventually reeled in, the winning 5lb Bass was firmly attached.
