Caradon Wood (Beat 13)

We regret to advise that LDAC has been unable to renew the fishing lease on the Caradon Wood Beat (13) on the River Lynher for the 2014 season.

This is due to a change of ownership. 

With immediate effect (and for the season start on 1st March 2014) LDAC members may not access or fish the Beat.

If you are unsure please download the updated maps here

LDAC Trophy keepsake

At the recent LDAC AGM - winners of Trophies were given their cup for the year - but also these rather nice keepsake LDAC Paperweights - very nice.

New Fowey Fishing

The Club is pleased to advise that the Coode Beat (3) on the River Fowey has now been extended 500m northwards beyond the two fields above Ashford Bridge.

Access remains the same - from Ashford Bridge - and the [End of Beat] sign has been moved accordingly.

Insurance Update

As of 1/2/14 Members no longer get complimentary 3rd Party Liability Insurance - this is due to a change in the Club's insurance company.

Environment Agency update

The Environment Agency are asking anglers to report any disease they encounter in Salmon and Sea Trout - a problem throughout Westcountry rivers - e-mail the Secretary here.

New Lynher Fishing

The club has acquired a long lease on a new stretch of fishing at Plushabridge
