Official Press Release 9th September 2019 Thurlbear Pond, Netherclay. Taunton
Following lengthy discussions and negotiations with the landowner of Thurlbear Pond, the landowner has unfortunately decided to terminate Taunton Angling Association’s fishing rights as from Monday 16th September 2019.
Therefore, it is with regret, Thurlbear Pond will close permanently on the above mentioned date.
The landowner wishes to use the land for his equestrian business. We have been informed by the landowner that the pond will never re-open and be used as a fishery.
TAA are now working along side the landowner and the EA in making the necessary arrangements to remove and relocate any stock which is the property of the club.
As a club we are continually working behind the scenes and are already looking at possible replacement venues. Watch this space.
Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused, this was the landowners final decision and we are sure you’ll appreciate it was out of our control.
