Today was part of the great Cod Beck litter clear up. A group of us met with waders and rubbish bags determined to clear some of the accumulation of litter from the lower water. We were quite successful; these pictures show a little of what we removed. I had no idea it had got that bad. Thanks to Andre Richer for being concerned enough to organise it all. Thanks to all you volunteers, you know who you are!!! Heroes each and every one of you, especially a non-member. Rose thanks for assisting.

Sowerby Angling Society is looking for a few more volunteers to assist in our regular bug monitoring program on our waters.
If you are interested full training will be provided, in return we ask for about a couple of hours of your time every couple of months to take and record samples from specified sites. You will work in pairs and your data will feed into a national bug sampling scheme.
It can be a good excuse to get a little extra fishing in too. Particularly as you will know what “dish of the day” is.
Please contact us using the contact page if you are interested and can spare some time.
