Club Days 2020/21 - New Club Day Organiser

At the end of the 2019 Season we welcomed Jason Chatham into the role of Club Day Organiser and he has just finalised the calendar for the 2020/21 season.
Jason works full time for British Telecom in London as a Software Engineering Manager, delivering websites for the BT and EE brands. He began his angling passion many years ago when he was 8, not too far from the banks of our Horseshoe lake over on the River Nene at Yarwell Mill.
Jason says "This year, I am hoping to build up the number of attendees at our fun and very sociable Club Days. They really are a great way to improve your skills and even learn new techniques from the other anglers, who also offer sound advice and opinions on tackle and baits. In addition, you get to fish a variety of venues, like Decoy Lakes, and see some great catches. Anglers of all abilities attend the Club Days and we are always looking for ways to include more people. If you have any suggestions as to how we can be more inclusive to increase attendance, please get in touch." - Contact Jason by email-

How does it work ?
One week before the match we will send out an email with an update on venue conditions and ask for a reply from anyone interested.
2/3 days before the match a confirmation email gets sent just to confirm numbers and any venue specific details and timings for meeting up.
On the Day - meet between 08:00 and 08:30, Draw at 8:30, Fishing from 10:00 until 15:00 (14:00 in winter), Weigh in usually takes 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Anglers can also just turn up on the day, but it helps to know the number of pegs to allocate to the match before the draw

How much does it cost ?
We have a £1 peg fee that goes back into the Club
Pool entry is optional but we usually put in £4. The pool pay-out depends on the number of anglers
On non Club venues there is also a day ticket to pay to the fishery (£8 for Decoy)

What are the trophies ?
The Club has a long history and with it comes a number of trophies that date back many years.
Most Club Days are associated with a trophy or a progression through a competitive series.
See here for a full list of trophies and recent winners.

Please Note:-
All attendees on the Fur and Feather match in December will go away with a prize, such as a bottle of wine or box of chocolates, etc. as in keeping with the clubs tradition.
Venue Subject To Conditions - These will be decided in the week leading up to the day, mainly due to conditions of the venue and also to take advantage of venues that are fishing well at the time. Once decided then the venue details will be sent out via email and on DSJAC Facebook page.
