Nice one Trevor - will be good to see you again. I think last time we were thigh deep in the Beverley Brook with Willie Smile

I will PM you my mobile so if you get lost I can try and help.

So we have Dave Harvey, me and James Annear, Kevin Russell, Andy and Clayton Shaw, Trevor Rowe.

Ideally, if possible, we could do with another 3 volunteers so if anyone's not got anything major going on Saturday morning your help will be gratefully received.

Last bump for Saturday's work on the Hogsmill.

New faces are very, very welcome. These work parties/litter clearances are how most of us got to know each other, so if you're a Thames angler that wants to get to know other like-minded lads, this would be ideal Smile

This is important work, will lead into in river habitat enhancements in a few months.

So a great chance to get involved, lets see a few new faces along. Smile

Bring your waders if you have them, they will be in river work and a major clean, have heard there is a sofa in the river?

Making that difference folks.

Also please bring a camera if you can,


I am going into nights but will be down with kit for the start, hope to see you there

Today was phase 1 of the TAC treatment. It is devoid of aquatic plant life, so the task was to cut back trees and bushes overhanging the river, to let the light in. We also cleared the river of all the rubbish that had been dumped into it - sofa, tyres, bags, carpets, lino, cans, bottles etc.

Phase 2 will be placing logs to create habitat and a series of riffles and pools. The power of the flow will be harnessed and directed which means the river will get desilted in places, leaving gravel for dace and chub to spawn on. Flow will also promote some aquatic plant life.

Thanks for giving up their Saturday mornings go to Trevor Rowe, James Annear, Andy and Clayton Shaw, Paul Snell, Kevin Russell and especially Andy Banham, who came all the way from Essex. Good also to see Dave and Harry Notley who came to say hello and to put faces to names.

May angling karma smile on you all and the river gods reward you with a few whackers Smile

Me and clayton both enjoyed the morning, it's good to get stuck in sometimes and it definately makes you feel better when you look at what you have done at the end, amazing how after just a few hours of not very hard work and a laugh can change a stretch of river from looking like polluted old swamp to a nice clean towpath and River walk, a dog walker thanked us on the way back to the car and offered to buy me and clayton a drink, speaking to another guy on the river bank who mentioned witnessing a mattress being dumped was also very happy to see his local river and walk being cared for and said hopefully he will see kingfishers flying up and down it again.
There was aquatic life in the river, myself and clayton spotted the odd small fish, we had an Egret fly over at the end so there must be something to eat in there..

Well done all, see you on the next one.

Andy & Clayton.

Top work lads, well done.
Tell me about the green trolley, who brought that along, looks like a handy bit of gear for clean-ups.

well done to all those who turned up and got stuck in, would like to have been there but am busy with football most weekends.
will try and get more involved with the tidy ups when the season (football not fishing) is over.
once again well done, does alot of good for the perceived image of anglers to be seen looking after places and not just using them for our own ends.

No you didnt miss it mate.

The emphasis of works on the Hogsmill has changed as the Wandle Trust secured a successful bid from DEFRA's catchment restoration fund, so effectively now the EA's efforts will go with them. Shame considering this event and previous things we have done down there but is how much of any river work goes now.

Nothing to stop us going and doing cleans ups, nothing at all.
