Concessionary Xmas match cancelled

The Maldon concessionary match at Little London Reservoir on 12th December 2017 has been cancelled due to bad weather conditions.  The Christmas match will now be in January date to be decided – Keith.

Concessionary match rules update

It was agreed by unanimous vote at the 6th Dec committee meeting that all of the remaining concessionary matches will be fished as ‘silver fish only matches’ and that ALL carp caught will count as 1lb (one pound) regardless of their weight.  This means that carp will not need to be weighed, or retained in keepnets, and can be returned to the water immediately after capture.  This rule will be enforced by the concessionary match secretary starting at the Xmas match at Little London on Tue 12th Dec (this match is already listed in the rulebook as a silvers match) until the end of the season.

Autumn reminder

Members are reminded that Rook Hall and Whitehouse Farm reservoir are now closed for the 4 month duck shooting season and will re-open on Thursday 1st Feb 2018.  There are also occasional duck shoots at Slough House West and Little London so please keep an eye out for signs at the entrance to these fisheries, especially on Fridays.

Night fishing at Bog Grove has now started and runs through until the 30th April 2018.

3 rods are now allowed on all venues for all standard night permit and Howells night permit holders as well as for members who have purchased the £30 winter 3 rod upgrade.  Regardless of which night permit you have you can use 3 rods on all venues including Howells.

Little London swims get face lift

Just a quick update on the swims over at Little London.  Myself and Michael have been over there the last two evenings continuing the work on the swims, the path and swims have been strimmed all the way round and the swims that we were working on regarding the water levels were both raised up and have now both been grass seeded and finished off with a good layer of top soil on each.  The forecast rain should help to bed them down tonight.  All the best – Jamie.
