Shrewsbury Angling Management Committee (SAMC) founded 1993 closes

SAMC is now entering a period of being dissolved. Annual Permit will be available to be purchased and will be honoured by STC until December 31st 2018, this will include insurance cover which will run until December 31st 2018.

However, constitution and rules of SAMC will change over to Shrewsbury Town Council June 3rd, through what I understand, will be on a new STC Angling website.

SAF/SAMC Facebook and website have undergone the name change to SAF only. It is envisaged that the SAF Facebook will cease as you have known it. SAF will not have a need for a public input entity and the website itself will be based as representative of SAF affiliated clubs and fisheries.

Most importantly a closed group member input will be afforded as a discussion platform for the end product “yet to discovered” of Oxon and Emstrey fisheries however will include an inter Affiliated Club competition scene of Canal, pool and river.

With regard to Oxon Pool and Emstrey “Game and Coarse”, these fisheries are currently under an SAF LIEN and run by a caretaker SAF syndicate. Fine tuning of this latter feature is under discussion to discover an end product that caters for the all the needs of these waters. Once concluded, notification will be placed on the SAF website only.

Butlers Pool will continue to be utilised as a training pool, having been exceptionally successful over the last three years, indeed 2017 SAMC receiving a total of 46 junior annual permit holders from the good works of Alex Wakely competitive schooling sessions. Whilst on the subject of SAF/SAMC success, Gary Dodd in 2016 sold no less than 1000 day permit, a record for any angling institution!
