Fixture list for concessionary anglers 2015-16

As those of you who attended our AGM will know Keith has already planned a comprehensive 51 match calendar for next season.  His list of Tuesday concessionary matches can be found here or on the concessionary match dates page.

Keith – organisation personified.

Slough House West to close early on Wednesday 7th January

There is a planned shoot at Slough House West on Tuesday 13th January (weather permitting) in the afternoon.  Please can you pack up and leave early as soon as the first shooters arrive.

Slough House West, an unsafe place for ducks between 1st Oct and 31st Jan.

Howells gets a facelift

Following on from the recent work party at Howells fishery bailiff Jamie has been hard at work with the assistance of a handful of dedicated members clearing swims and paths and putting down wood chippings to keep the lake fishable throughout the winter.  Work is ongoing so if you see Jamie on the bank feel free to ‘chip in’ (pun intended).

Just one of the areas at Howells that has benefitted from an application of wood chippings (all sourced on site).

January 2015 newsletter

The winter 2015 newsletter is now out.  If you wrote an email address on your application form when you joined a pdf of the newsletter has already been emailed to you, otherwise a paper copy is on its way to you in the post.  If for some reason neither arrives you can also get a copy of the newsletter here.

Save £50 on life membership

If you have been considering joining on a life membership I recommend that you do so before the end of March 2015.  This is because we only have a few left and a current life membership costs £700 but this will increase to £750 on 1st April 2015.  I appreciate that a week before Christmas is not the best time to tell you this but we do offer a cheque spread option to ease the financial burden.  Click here and scroll down a bit for more information.

Life membership gives you plenty of time to try our new lakes, like Slough House West pictured above, as well as our long established fisheries.

AGM – Sunday 18th January 2015 at 10am

The Annual General Meeting will take place on Sunday 18th January 2015 at Great Totham village hall, commencing at 10.00hrs.

Two proposals for rule changes have been received. They are as follows: 

1. Keepnets to be banned, except during organised matches, during the summer months to help reduce the spread of waterborne diseases (especially KHV). Exact dates are to be agreed, but 1st June to 31st August is suggested  as a starting point for discussion. 

2. Selection of anglers for all Angling Trust Team events and all Essex inter club matches and any team event representing MAS should be from full members who have attended  at least 20% of club matches in the previous twelve months.

Great Totham Village Hall will again host the AGM.

2015-16 membership renewals will be available on the day.

To find out what went on last year you can read the AGM 14 Minutes and the Fishery Management report.
