We have received a report of an angler spinning on Society waters at Great Langton. Spinning on any river stretches is not permitted under Society rules. The Society has been in contact with local police and the environment agency who will now include the Great Langton stretch on patrols as they step up efforts to curb illegal angling activity in Richmondshire. All members should report any suspicious activity on Society waters and are encouraged to check the permits of anyone they find fishing.
