SALTAIRE AA The canal between Dockfield Road swing bridge and Hirst Wood lock is closed on Sunday for an outside match booking.

Anyone interested should come to the meeting. Contact the general secretary on 01274-214441 for more information.
LISTERHILLS AA The period of unsettled weather has led to inconsistent results. Small fish are still responding on the canal, including pike to 14lb from Pilley’s on a dead bait. Anglers pike fishing must use a wire trace and be in possession of forceps. Membership is still available until the end of the year at reduced rates, £6 for seniors and £3 for all others.
