LBAC fishery closure
Due to the current Covid-19 situation we have reluctantly decided to close all of our waters. While angling is probably a safe activity for members we do not want members to break the Government instruction to avoid all journeys that are unnecessary. We will open our waters as soon as the Government relax the lockdown instructions for the country. In the meantime stay safe, stay in your house and avoid unnecessary social contact. Our best wishes to all of you in these difficult times.
Rackley stocking
Rackley has been stocked with roach and some perch.  About 5000 small roach in the 4 to 5 inch range have been stocked into Rackley. Later this year we hope to stock new carp in the 5lb to 12lb weight range.
2020 AGM
Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak we have decided to postpone the club AGM on Tuesday 21st April, 2020. If possible we will organise the AGM later this year.
New rule : Bivvies cannot be used at Claydon, this is a request from the Claydon estate and will be a rule in our new membership book for 2019/2020. You may use a fishing umbrella at Claydon when necessary. It has also been noted that some anglers have abused the leaving times at Claydon. Failure to leave on time, to be on the estate grounds after the time in the membership book, will result in membership being removed for a minimum of one year, longer for serious infringement of the leaving time rule.
New rule : From June 1st 2019 all members must display their membership booklets when fishing at Claydon lakes. Estate officials and LBAC bailiffs must be able to see a current, valid membership booklet displayed in a position making it easily seen.

Also please note again that anglers found to be on the estate grounds after the times clearly stated at the back of the membership book will have their LBAC membership removed and be banned from club membership.

Please note that Claydon Lakes open to LBAC members on June 1st.

Tiddenfoot continues to produce large carp and catfish. See the photos page for pictures of some stunning carp. Carp to 44lb have been caught recently. Recent events when an area of acid grassland was damaged by an angler have highlighted the need for our members to understand fully that ANY changes, digging, step making or cutting cannot take place at Tiddenfoot. Our club rules make it clear that anglers may not carry out any changes or bankside work on any of our waters. LBAC will ban any member who disregards this important rule. Also our bailiffs at Tiddenfoot have been instructed to report any disruptive or inappropriate behaviour on behalf of any club member to the committee. Action will be taken against the few anglers who cannot behave appropriately.

If you are fishing at night you must have a valid night pass in your membership book. Anglers who do not have a passport style photograph of themselves on the night pass page will be asked to leave the water. The membership clearly states that a night pass without a photograph is not valid. Also please read the Tiddenfoot night fishing page, become familiar with the rules and use appropriate tackle for the large catfish and carp in the water.

Rackley Hills
Catfish to 60lb have been caught recently. Anglers fishing for catfish during the daytime have been successful. Please note the club rule concerning using appropriate tackle. Ensure you have adequate strength line, a rod capable of handling large catfish and a landing net capable of containing the fish you hook. A large fish mat is needed, also a weight sling suitable for catfish.
