Please stick to the car parks

Members are reminded that under no circumstances can they drive beyond society car parks and around society waters.  Anyone caught doing so will be liable to receive a warning and lose their right to hold a night fishing permit.  The main venues where people are tempted to ‘drop off tackle in their swims’ or ‘fish from their vehicles’ are Slough House Farm, Rook Hall and Beckingham Hall but reports have also been received in the past from Howells and incredibly from Little Park, Bog Grove and New Hall!

Also if someone else drives around the lake to visit you or drop you off (member or not) then you are still responsible so please ask them not to do it!

Finally we are working on replacing the combination padlock at Little Park so until we do you might still have to use the alternative approved (by the landowner) entrance by Red Lodge.  It is very important that you close and lock all access gates, especially at Little Park and Rook Hall where new signage will soon be put up reminding members to do so and improve the security of these popular lakes.

Please keep access gates locked and stick to the car parks.

Night permit sales pick up

With the four day Easter weekend fast approaching night permit sales have picked up.  Standard night permits can still be renewed / purchased at JP Tackle in Maldon but to prevent sales exceeding the 100 limit are no longer available at Angling Essentials in Witham or Bevan Tackle in Springfield.  Both standard and Howells night permits are still available from the membership secretary and if you have reserved one please submit your renewal soon to avoid disappointment as reserved tickets will only be held until Friday 13th April 2012.

The sun sets on a one nighter at Slough House Farm

Ide stocking with more fish to follow

5000 ide  have now been stocked, 1000 into each of Slough House Farm, Whitehouse Farm, Bog Grove, Heron Hall and Rook Hall.  2500 skimmers are also on order for Rook Hall and Heron Hall.  If all goes to plan, and water levels do not drop too far in the predicted drought, another 1000 tench for Whitehouse Farm will follow in June.

Early Renewers

Thank you to the 60 members who renewed early at the AGM, or by printing off a renewal form from this website, as this has saved us over £20 on postage which equates, at todays prices, to over 100 ide to stock into either Slough House Farm, Whitehouse Farm, Bog Grove or Heron Hall.  We are hoping to buy 7,000 fish in total, subject to availability, to stock into these four venues and Rook Hall before the weather warms up and makes fish movements unwise.  Full details, and hopefully some photos, will be posted on this website following delivery.

Slough House Farm – just one of five venues earmarked to receive more silver fish for next season.

A Christmas Message from John

The venue for the Christmas Concessionary Match on Tue 13th Dec has been switched from the canal at Tesco to Slough House Farm as we all want to catch some fish and the last match on the canal at Paper Mill Lock was a complete blank.  I am sure the big shoals of Roach at Slough House won’t let us down (hindsight is a marvellous thing as unfortunately they didn’t show and everyone blanked!).

Slough House Night Fishing Closes

Members are reminded that night fishing at Slough House farm has now ended for the season but the water remains open to fishing from 5am to 10pm.

Slough House Farm – a big sky venue.
