Please be aware that during matches at Lane Head, cones will be placed halfway up the ramp to the car park to stop access and egress. This is to avoid disturbance at that end of the lake. Also bank walking will not be permitted during the match.
For those wanting to fish the Specimen lake please park on the car park prior to 8am (leaving after 3pm) otherwise you can drop your gear at the gate, turn round using the ramp and park at the top of the lane.

It has been brought to the committee's attention that some anglers are using more than 2 rods. Please can we remind anglers that a maximum of two rods only are allowed on WVAS waters. This is stated under item .d. of the Appendix in the Clubs Constitution (Society Byelaws), which states, 'Any number of rods may be set-up, but a maximum of two rods are to be used at any one time’.
