Rats at Long Copse  April 2017
Members of LDAS committee met up with the Mole Valley Senior Parks Officer and his pest control contractor on Wednesday and they have kindly agreed to place poison traps at Long Copse to deal with the rat problem.  It is therefore especially important to ensure that no litter or discarded is there a generic cialis bait/food is left on the bank so as to ensure that the rats will eat the bait meant for them.  Please report any rats seen or any improvement.

River Tuition on the River Mole

Last year we organised a very successful half-day river tuition for members wanting to either learn different river methods or to pick the brains of our regular team as to where the best swims are.
Whatever your reason, come and join us to find out more about our stretch of the River Mole.
We have pencilled in two dates;
Wednesday 19th September 10.00am
Sunday 21st October 11.00am
Places are limited depending on the number of river advisors we have available, so PLEASE let me know which day you would like to come on.
After a walk along the river bank (wear appropriate footwear) you will, in pairs, be handed over to an instructor.  
Depending on the weather, do bring suitable clothing.
DO bring ONE rod and reel and light tackle. ledgers, groundbait feeders, maggot feeder, etc. Chub are keen on meat and maggots.
PARKING: You are probably aware Young Street is currently closed and when reopens parking fees will apply.  We will supply PARKING PERMITS for the day if you have pre-registered, or apply for a permit via our website, which are FREE until 31st March 2019.
Please call or email with any questions;
