Where do you prefer to go to fish a match? Is it a river, canal, natural lake or commercial fishery? Do you prefer a mixed fishery or a carp water? Are facilities such as loos and cafe important to you?

Let us know as your preferances can shape the future choice of venues.

A river with a decent head of fish of all sizes, preferably parking by your peg [or close by], anything on top of that facilities wise is a bonus.

Small rivers and canals, parking for larger vehicles, a good head of gudgeon (  roach, dace, chub etc., are acceptable, too )....

I think the club should look at fishing more lakes in  t he summer months and winter as you always seem to get a better turnout rivers are fine but clubs that  have a more variety in their fixture list seem to have a better following even if they do not have any waters if  more comercials and lakes were added to the owac fixture lists it might improve the turn outs on a sunday   and attract  new members because it would have something for every angler . I  feel the clubs attitude towards thease type of waters is holding it back which is a shame because it is one of the friendliest clubs i have ever been a member of .

 The club is always on the look out for new committe members and it is the people who usually  fish the fixture lists  that join committies

To the end of October ( summer? ) we have:

9 lake matches, 4 of them at commercials; 6 Thames matches at 3 different venues; River matches on the Loddon, Kennet, Mole and Wey. :)

Most commercials charge £8-10 per peg for matches. If the club pays it goes bust, if the members have to pay most of them don't go..... :(
