Carp match at Howells on weekend of 24th-25th September

Howells will be closed to non-competitors from 8am on Sat 24th Sep to 1pm on Sun 25th Sep for the 24 hour carp match.  The draw for swims will take place at 10am on Sat.  I believe that there are still a few places left so if you are interested please contact Dean Andrews on the number listed in the rulebook.  Remember that this is a rare opportunity for any member who hasn’t got a Howells night permit to fish an overnighter at the venue.


One of the many Commons that makes Howells the ideal venue for the 24 hour carp match.

Coming soon – Sat 1st Oct – half price winter ticket

From Saturday 1st October the half price winter ticket to fish until the end of the season will again be available. To join please print off this Winter Ticket Application Form 2016-17  follow the instructions and post it off to the membership secretary. Also from Sat 1st Oct you can take your photos (or old membership card) and payment to JP Tackle, Angling Essentials or Specimen Angling where you can join in person and go fishing straight away.  Please note that all night permits are sold out but if you want to use 3 rods you can also purchase a £30 winter 3 rods upgrade.

For additional info please see the Reverse of the Application Form and the Winter Ticket poster

Bog Grove – still a favourite venue in the depths of winter as it will even produce fish on days like this.

Sun 25th Sep is going to be a busy day on the Chelmer & Blackwater canal

The 25th Sep is going to be a busy day for our Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation.  As well as the Maldon Marathon there is the Triathlon which will be starting at Hoe Mill.  This involves canoeing and cycling which will disrupt the river from Hoe Mill to Paper Mill including Beeleigh Lock.  The Driberg cup match at Boreham will also be affected.

Possible traffic disruption on Sun 25th Sep

Members are reminded that the Maldon Half Marathon is being run on Sunday 25th Sep and this might disrupt the flow of traffic near some of our fisheries such as the Railway Pond, Howells and Little Park.  Any member looking to drive through Maldon or Heybridge could get delayed.  For more info and a map of the route please see http://www.maldonhalfmarathon.com/.  Members heading back towards Maldon after the Howells carp match might need to find an alternative route.   Thank you to Dennis Sherwood for drawing this event to my attention.
