Howells night tickets increased from 50 to 60 next season

It was agreed at the December committee meeting to increase the number of Howells night permits that we issue from 50 to 60 next season and the first ten people on the waiting list have already been offered a place by email.  More information can be found on the Night Permits page above.

Howells carp match result

Our annual carp match was held at Howells over the weekend of 24th-25th Sep.  7 anglers fished and 17 fish were caught for a combined weight of 259lb.

1st place and retaining his title was Graham Surridge with 5 fish for 93lb 14oz.

2nd was Tony Hayden with 6 fish for 59lb 4oz

Winner of the Alan Hare Cup for the biggest fish caught in the competition was Shaun Birnie with a Common of 27lb 10oz, the same fish that won it last year – Breeze Block.

Thanks go to our sponsors Specimen Carp Baits for their bait prize donations.

The average size of carp caught was 15lb 3oz and £70 was raised for the carp stock fund.

MAS garments make the perfect Christmas gifts

If you are wondering what to buy the Maldon AS member in your life don’t forget that we have a number of hoodies, hats, caps and shirts in stock in various sizes.  Please contact Denise or Paul on 01621 857427 if you would like to make a purchase.


We can’t be certain if wearing a MAS hoodie helped Graham Surridge catch the heaviest weight of carp in the Howells carp match final two years running but we can’t rule it out either!

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.

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.
