Leave litter – leave the club

Please note that we have already issued one life ban this year for leaving litter.  Please help us keep this figure below two by taking all of your rubbish home with you.

The 2017 rulebooks have been posted out

The new 2017 green rulebooks have now been posted out to all members along with a new Tails Up catalogue giving members a chance to purchase bait at a special discounted rate.  Thank you to Jamie for sending these out, at least he didn’t have to lick the stamps.  If your rulebook hasn’t arrived please let the membership secretary know or pop into JP Tackle with your 2017-18 membership card to pick one up.

Chelmer & Blackwater Close Season

Members of Maldon AS, Chelmsford AA, Kelvedon DAA, Colchester APS and day ticket anglers are reminded that the last day of fishing on the Chelmer & Blackwater river/canal was Tuesday 14th March.  The Environment Agency will be enforcing the traditional 3 month close season between the 15th March and 15th June 2017 on the entire river/canal network.

Fortunately 16 of our stillwaters remain open between the 15th March and 15th June so MAS members (who have rejoined for the 2017-18 season) will not have to hang up their rods for 3 months.

Leave litter – leave the club

Please could you remind your members that they should not leave any litter behind when fishing along the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation. It has been brought to my attention that some fishermen have not been taking their rubbish away on the stretch from Hoe Mill towards Little Baddow.  Your cooperation in this matter would be appreciated.

Kind regards,
Jenny Clemo
Parish Clerk
Langford & Ulting Parish Council

Any of our members who are caught leaving litter at any of our fisheries will be banned for life – you have been warned.

New restrictions at Whitehouse Farm

The owner of Whitehouse Farm has asked us to apply the following restrictions with immediate effect:

Junior members (aged under 16) can no longer fish the lake unless accompanied by an adult member aged 18+.

No fishing allowed after dusk (30 minutes after sunset).

An amount of litter has also been picked up at Whitehouse Farm, anybody caught littering will be banned for life.

These new restrictions were reviewed at the committee meeting on 1st March and it was agreed to keep them in place for the 2017-18 season.  As such they now appear in the new 2017 rulebook.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Half term reminder

Members are reminded that all members under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult member aged 18+ at all times whilst fishing and under 12′s cannot be dropped off at fisheries and picked up later in the day.
