Help with coaching juniors wishing to learn to fish

The coaching sessions organised by the Angling Coaching Initiative in conjunction with KDAA and MAS have been most successful since the first one held on the 19th May with up to ten participants at sessions.  Although ACI have a pool of Volunteer Coaches it is not sufficiently large enough to ensure they can provide one to one coaching particularly during the summer school holiday period owing to many of the volunteers being unavailable due to their own holidays and other commitments.  If you are able to help, even for just one or two sessions can you please contact Chris Burt on 07917 781299 or via email at chris@candjb.co.uk.  It is fun and most rewarding.

Future dates and venues are on the ACI website  https://anglingcoachinginitiative.co.uk/events-calendar  along with a blog of the sessions held to date.

The next two sessions where we more help would definitely be appreciated are next Wed 15th Aug at Rook Hall and on Wed 22nd Aug at Bog Grove.

Lost Rod and Reel at Bog Grove

Doug’s brand new rod and reel was dragged in at Bog Grove on Wednesday 25th July.  It’s a 13ft black Shakespeare Agility Power Match Rod.  If you find it please contact the membership secretary, Ken the bailiff or email webmaster@maldonas.co.uk.

Learn how to fish

You might have caught some of Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse fishing for tench, bream, roach and rudd on TV last night and thought “I fancy giving that a go myself”.  If you did but you have no fishing tackle or any idea how to get started then the answer is at hand.  Contact Chris Burt at Angling Coaching Initiative who will be very happy to advise you further and can book you onto one of his angling coaching days.  All tackle will be provided for you to use free of charge on the day and you will only be asked to pay from £7.50 per session to cover the cost of the bait.  Chris is running several coaching days across a variety of Maldon AS and Kelvedon DAA fisheries and he can be contacted by phone on 07917 781299, by email at chris@candjb.co.uk, via the  Angling Coaching Initiative website which can be found at https://anglingcoachinginitiative.co.uk/ or by post at 3 Great Cob, Chelmsford, Essex CM1 6LA.

Unhooking mat found at Bog Grove

One of our members was fishing at Bog Grove yesterday 31st Oct and found an unhooking mat hanging in the trees. It would be nice if the owner gets it back.  Please contact the membership secretary or email webmaster@maldonas.co.uk if the unhooking mat belongs to you.
