What is the Club?
The Chew Fly Fishing Club can trace its roots back as a club fishing on the River Chew for
more than 100 years. For many years the Club has rented fishing rights on the Chew from
below Pensford Bridge to the bridge at Woollard, a distance of just over a mile. The Club
also rents a small lake. This lake was created in 1985 by damming a spring-fed tributary of
the Chew by Bruce Thompson of Church Farm, Publow whose family was the main land
owner along the river for many years. Church Farm is now owned by Keith Dawe and farmed by Tom Rogers. Parking is provided on the farm land opposite the Dutch barn.
How is the Club organised?
The Club currently has a Chairman, a Secretary/Treasurer and a further three Committee
members within an overall membership limited to 35. There are rules and a written
constitution. The Annual General Meeting, which is generally held in January each year,
provides a forum for the election of officers and committee members, for the selection of new members, for discussion of proposals put forward by the committee or offered from the floor, and for decisions on the finances for the season ahead. Social events are held during the season. The subscription for the 2016 season has remained at £240 (Adult), £300 (Family) and £50 (Junior).
