It was really nice that our previous president Sid Batten came along to see the works at Sampford Ponds he was delighted with everything and we were very proud to have approval from Sid who was and still is a big part of Exeter Angling Association.

You might have seen recently some work going on in the flood prevention channel adjacent to Trews Weir on the river Exe. I have now received photos and footage from the Environment Agency (thanks Nick Maye).
Fish rescue was successfully carried out by Sonbury Ltd, stonbury.com/
Well done to everyone involved and just to let you know all fish were returned to the River Exe below Trews Weir. A surprising variety!

So the works at Sampford are coming to their conclusion. We hope to reopen the ponds on Friday 14th.

Swims have been repaired the bank that floods in the winter has been raised and the new carpark has been extended.

Clearly this has been quite an undertaking and we would like to thank all of those who have been of help.

There will still be the odd bit of work to do over coming weeks but this will not affect the fishing.

Areas may be a little bare but nature will take its course and once fully recovered this water is fit for a few more years.

Special thanks go to Paul Doran our water manager who has volunteered every day to enable these works to be completed in good time!! 😁🎣🎣🎣
