Little London receives a boost

At a recent committee meeting it was agreed that the Maldon lake that was probably fishing the slowest was Little London so to try and remedy the situation we would ensure that the next batch of fish we purchased would be stocked into this attractive fishery.  I can now confirm that 255lb of silver fish and 30 carp to low doubles have been stocked with more silver fish to follow soon.

Just some of the silvers about to go into Little London.

Bailiffs to check rigs

Following increased reports of members using leaders (all forms of leader are banned on all of our fisheries) and also death rigs with permanently fixed leads our bailiffs will be carrying out increased checks of rigs to ensure that they comply with our rules.  If a bailiff asks to see your rig please show it to him as we are only trying to protect our valuable fish stocks.  This Safe Rigs pdf from a few seasons ago still applies in this situation.  Thank you.

Totham Pit path transformed

We had a good day with the machines down the pit with Nick on the digger & myself on the dumper we managed to move a massive amount of stone from round the back near the point on to the boggy area around the back path, it was very wet round there so as you can imagine it got pretty messy when digging it all out to create a nice wide path to cover with the stone , as you can see from the pictures we have got a nice solid base around there now which the water can drain straight through and hopefully stop the waterlogging. We tried to get as much out of the machines while we had them so got all the digging and moving of stone done.  I’m going back down there with Nick to have a tidy up around the bridge at the bottom of the slope as this was one area that didn’t fare too well with the machines going in there.  I will keep you posted as the path beds in with some foot traffic and more people pushing a barrow round that way hopefully.  Looks a little raw at the moment but it will settle down and things will grow back along side it.  Regards – Jamie.

The previously boggy path behind floaters bay at Totham Pit has been transformed.

Bog Grove tree removal on Friday 9th October

Bog Grove was closed for safety reasons on Friday 9th October so that a large tree could be removed by experts prior to the autumn winds arriving and putting anglers at risk.  We are pleased to report that the operation went smoothly.

Now you see it, now you don’t.
