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.

Stuck for a Christmas present…

If our MAS hoodies do not appeal why not renew your loved ones membership for Christmas?  To do so please print off this Xmas Application Form 2015-16, fill it in with their details and post it off to the membership secretary with his/her membership card and your payment.  If you cannot locate their membership card please send a replacement passport sized photo and Paul will do the rest.  Alternatively visit JP Tackle in Maldon who can also process renewals from 10am Sat 13th Dec (excluding night permits).  New members can also join for next season using this application form (please supply 2 photos) and get the last 3 months of this season for free.  All 2015-16 memberships are valid from 25th Dec so join now to fish until 31st March 2016.

Garbolino landing net handle found

John from JP Tackle in Maldon says:

I was walking along the Chapmans bit of the canal and I found a handle section for a Garbolino landing net handle.  Someone may have reported it lost but might not even know its missing.

If the handle is yours please call in to JP Tackle and ask for John.
