Night permit holders urged to renew early

Night permit holders are reminded to renew early for 2015-16 to avoid disappointment.  Standard night permits are limited to 110 and are all being sold on a first come first serve basis.  Howells night permits are restricted to 50 and all are reserved for existing holders until 1st Apr 2015 when any remaining will be offered to members on the waiting list.  To keep up to date with how many are left please visit our night permits page.

Photo competition latest

Might we have a new front runner in the non-carp category, I have just received this pic of a 16lb pike landed from Totham Pit by Shaun Birnie

I hope the editor likes predators!

Pair of boots left at Howells

If anyone has found Phil’s boots, which he left behind in the Howells car park, he would very much like them back.  If you have found them please contact the membership secretary who will put you in touch with Phil.

Photo competition

When our editor compiled the winter newsletter he decided to include some photos from our gallery and was hoping to find some snaps of tench, roach, perch, chub, bream, crucian, pike etc to select from but instead he founds loads of photos of carp and not much else.  As most of us appreciate that carp are very photogenic this was no surprise to me.  Anyway he suggested that we run a small competition to increase the number of non-carp photos and here it is.  The member who submits the best non-carp fish photo in 2015 will win a half price membership for 2016-17.  Closing date for entries is 24th Dec 2015 and the editor’s decision is final.  You don’t have to do anything fancy to enter, just submit your non-carp fish photo along with the date it was caught, its weight and the venue to the gallery in the usual way.  Please remember that the gallery cannot cope with any photo greater than 2mB in size so you might have to downsize before submission.

As you know the membership secretary has a new penchant for eels and the early front runner is this huge eel caught by Alan King from Bog Grove.

It’s actually quite difficult to tell which end the eel’s head is (this is not an additional competition).

So as not to appear fishist the membership secretary is offering the same prize (a half price membership for 2016-17) for the best carp photo submitted although the fish you currently have to beat is Andy Flower’s stunning 23lb fully scaled mirror from Howells:

The bar has been set extremely high although beauty is in the eye of the carp-holder.

Get out there, get catching and get snappy.

Renewals for 2015-16

If you wrote an email address on your application form when you joined for the 2014-15 season a pdf version of the 2015-16 season renewal form has now been emailed to you.  This can also be found here and on the renewals page.  If not I posted you a paper copy of the renewal form this morning 17th Feb which should arrive by the end of this week.  Thank you to everyone who has already rejoined.  JP Tackle in Maldon and Specimen Angling in Springfield already have the new 2015-16 membership stickers and our other agent Angling Essentials in Witham will have them soon - Paul.

The real renewal form is a lot bigger.

Tue 24th Feb concessionary match moved to Little Parks

The 24th February concessionary match should have been at Bog Grove but because of the ground conditions we are now holding the match at Little Park (all depending  on the  weather conditions).
