Howells is not for sale

In an effort to dispel some of the rumours that have been flying around Howells is not for sale.  The new Heybridge bypass will eventually be built close to Howells, and the building work at the end of Broad Street Green will expand to create a new garden suburb, but Howells lies outside of this development.

On the subject of Howells there is one Howells night permit left for this season so if you have been a member for two years, and have a clean record with us, and fancy doing the winter on Howells you can upgrade your existing standard night permit to a Howells night permit for an additional £30.  Please contact the membership secretary via webmaster@maldonas.co.uk on a first come first serve basis.

Howells gate

The Howells gate is regularly being left unlocked by members, not farm workers.  While we appreciate that the padlock can be a bit tricky to close at the best of times, the next person caught leaving the gate unsecured will be made an example of - The Howells Bailiffing Team.

Howells and Slough House Bankside Warning

Howells is extremely waterlogged and boggy in places.  Please can members take care and use common sense when walking round and setting up so as not to churn the bank side and swims up too much please.

Also I am receiving reports that Slough House Farm is very muddy after all of the recent rain and the farmer is regularly accessing the site for sugar beet storage purposes.  Please proceed to your swim with caution especially if using a barrow which is likely to sink into the mud.

Finally the car park at Slough House West is very muddy due to winter tractor activity, you might want to avoid visiting at the moment unless you have a four wheel drive vehicle.

Autumn reminder

Members are reminded that Rook Hall and Whitehouse Farm reservoir are now closed for the 4 month duck shooting season and will re-open on Thursday 1st Feb 2018.  There are also occasional duck shoots at Slough House West and Little London so please keep an eye out for signs at the entrance to these fisheries, especially on Fridays.

Night fishing at Bog Grove has now started and runs through until the 30th April 2018.

3 rods are now allowed on all venues for all standard night permit and Howells night permit holders as well as for members who have purchased the £30 winter 3 rod upgrade.  Regardless of which night permit you have you can use 3 rods on all venues including Howells.

The sun sets on another summer’s fishing at Rook Hall.

Howells work party on Sun 15th Oct

The Howells work party went very well with a good turn out of 15 people.

Items found at Little Parks and Howells

We have a few found items, a set of 2 keys with ZOO embossed on them found over Little Park , also got a section of a bed chair leg left over Howells and there is a pair of glasses that were found over Little Park a couple of weeks ago.  Pictures of these items can be found on our lost and found page.  Please contact Jamie if any of these items belong to you.
