We're thankful to member Howard Lloyd, for letting us share with you this picture of a lovely common carp which he caught on the Three Pools.  Although not a large fish, it's certainly a nice looking specimen, and shows that you never really know what you'll catch next on the drains!!

I am delighted to be able to report that following very positive negotiations with Wigan & District Angling Association, we have agreed that the Rufford Canal will be fishable by members of both Associations along it entire length.

Please note that any bait restrictions on each of the Associations length of the canal will still apply and matches must be booked via the appropriate match secretary of the controlling Association.

We believe that this is a very positive step for the anglers of both Associations.

For clarity I have detailed the controlling Associations length of the Rufford Canal below:

Wigan AA control between bridges 1 to 7

Southport DAA control between bridges 7 to 12, which is the swing bridge at Tarleton

What a great start to the new year for Jack Lloyd, his first double figure pike of 2016 from the drains, we are sure there will be many more to come for Jack!
