    new club

    hi ray you need to get some posters up at work and your local pub to get interest then call a meeting to find out wot fishing they like rivers canals carp then start booking club have 12 matchs a year so we can still fish open matchs ,my club members pay up front for all the venues so you or the new club is not loseing money when members dont turn up .to raise money for the club you could start taking a blackout round at work thats wot we do .hope this helps let me no how u get on good luck its hard work

      Hi Sumo

      Thanks for the advice.......I can,t see it being a very serious club but you never know there might be a couple who are good enough to put a team together and fish some of the local leagues.At the moment there are 7 of us interested so far, not enough for a proper match yet.Poster has only been up 2 days.The trouble is I don,t know anything about the way they fish or much about them.I thought about having a little league to see what quality of anglers I have.Also do you happen to know the formula for working out the winnings.
