14 people fished the Dean Johnson Memorial Match fished over 24h at Broom Lake last weekend with plummeting overnight temperatures.  Unfortunately the carp were not in an obliging mood with only 5 being caught, all being commons. Mark Price landed two twenty pounders.  Junior member Shane Pepper also landed two carp, upping his PB twice with a 13 pounder followed by a 16.  Aaron Price was the only other person to catch a carp with a 9lb common.

Details and application forms can be found on the membership section of the SDAA website.  Postal applications for the 2015/16 season are now being accepted via the Registrar.  New membership books are now available from local tackle shops. 2015/16 membership and night permits are valid for fishing from the date of purchase through to 15th June 2016.
