Totham Pit will appear extra busy on Sat 16th Aug

If you are planning on fishing Totham Pit on Sat 16th Aug don’t panic when you arrive and find the car park full of cars as most of their occupants will not be fishing and hopefully your favourite swim will still be free.  If you can find a parking space the lake is open to all members for fishing.

Breaking news – new fishery to open on 1st July

I am pleased to confirm that Paul and Denise will be announcing at the Blackwater Country Show that we have secured the fishing rights on a new fishery, which if all goes to plan, will open to members on Tuesday 1st July.  Paul has some photos of the new lake which is only a stones throw away from another of our fisheries.  I am yet to see the new lake but hear it is a bit smaller than Bog Grove and is well established with an island and reed fringed margins.  Fish stocks are believed to include lots of roach and carp to mid doubles.  More information will follow here before the new lake opens to members on the 1st July.  Please do not visit the new lake  (if you think you know where it is) until the 1st July as signage and some bankside works are yet to be completed.  Fishing will be from 5am to 10pm with no night fishing.

Totham Pit – the venue for this year’s open day.

Open day date for your diary

The date of our open day has just been announced.  This year it will be held on Sunday 21st July at Totham Pit to coincide with national fishing week from 19th – 26th July.  The lake will not be closed to members on this day, in fact the more the merrier!  Totham Pit has twice as many swims as Bog Grove (our usual venue) so there will be plenty of room for everyone.  More details will follow closer to the day.

When the open day comes round Totham Pit won’t look like this shot taken in January…

Carnival Float

It has been suggested that we might want to enter a float (not a 3BB waggler before anyone thinks of suggesting it) into this years Maldon carnival as we used to in days gone by.  If any members are interested in joining Tim, our senior match secretary, on the MAS float please contact him by email so we can gauge interest.
