Following our first meeting back in April and the intervening summer I hope you are all looking forwarding to this season's winter pike fishing.
I am pleased to advise that dates for this season's meetings are now confirmed and are as follows:
Thurs 23 September 10
Thurs 21 October 10
Thurs 25 November 10
Thurs 16 December 10 - Neville Fickling
Thurs 27 January 11
Thurs 24 February 11
Thurs 24 March 11
Thurs 21 April 11
These meetings will be held at The Red Lion pub, Eynsham, starting at 7.30pm so please put these dates in your diary and support these as they are key to the group developing.
I am currently tying up guest speakers with Drennan Cup winner Julian Chidgey, Neville Fickling, Steve Younger and Phil Wakeford amongst those lined up. I would also like to see some of our members give a talk on their fishing so please let me know if your up for it.
I plan to have a couple of trophies this season, maybe one for biggest river pike and one for biggest still water pike but we can discuss this at the first meeting on Thurs 23 Sept. As well as this maybe we can a fish-in or two, a curry night and a quiz night.
