It's your club, do you have something to say about it? Perhaps you have an idea or suggestion for something new, or maybe how we can improve on what we already have. Here's where you provide feedback. Oh and if you'd like to provide a testimonial about the club for use in CFFC promotion post it here! (it'll be annonymous if you want it so).
Each month we will be giving away a days fishing ticket for Clatworthy (5 fish) to the value of £23. All current members are eligble to win and entered in the draw, a name will be picked at random (using an online random name generator tool). The winners name will be posted here.
Terms: No cash alternative. Ticket is not transferable and solely for use by the winner. Valid only for Clatworthy Reservoir.
Results and announcements for the club fun competitions
Each month of the season there will be a small prize and a shield for the captor of the heaviest trout. At the end of the season the largest fish of the season will win the competition and receive a prize and remain holder of the 'biggest fish trophy' until the end of the next season.
We will be revitilising the trophy that the old club had as it goes back a good few years with lots of names (& decent fish!) already on it. The competition is kindly sponsored by Snowbee who are providing the prizes.

Been fishing at Clatworthy? had a blank or bagged up in no time? Fishing from a boat or the bank? Tell us when and where you were fishing, what your set-up was & what flies you used. Help other members get an idea of what methods are producing and where the fish are, share the love :-) If you want to familiarise yourself with the named areas of the reservoir have a look at the map page on the main website menu.
A series of video blogs discussing; what's catching at Clatworthy, fishing hotspots, seasonal fly fishing methods worth noting, views from the bank and boat and mentions of notable catches...

Imagine a fishing lodge with nice comfy sofas, a woodburner for those chilly nights, excellent wine and good company. This is the place for general chitter chatter and tales of the one (or two) that got away. You can post on any topic you like (within reason of course).
Chin Chin :)
Looking for a boat partner? or perhaps you'd like some company for a few hours at Clatworthy. No matter if it's coarse fishing with flies on the Somerset levels, a day out 'up country' to another reservoir, or perhaps some river fishing for trout, sea trout or salmon. Wherever you're going, fishing related or not, here's the place to let people know.
Got some great pics you'd like to share? Then here's the place. It doesn't have to be pics of fishing or trout though it's a good place to brag about your PB rainbow :) however photos of you sunbathing on Weston beach probably won't be of much interest to others or will they?
Note: Videos are massive storage / bandwidth hogs so for the moment there's only a paltry file size allowed. Sorry about that! When the club coffers can afford to spend on upgrading the website hosting then things will change, Yay!
