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.


A happy student with a fine Tench landed at Rook Hall during a coaching session earlier this month.

There’s no stopping Kelvin

All from Totham Pit today (Wed 13th Jun) from the swim directly behind the container on method feeder and 6mm white chocolate wafters. 8 Tench, including an 8lb 1oz monster (also my PB), 3 @ 6lb+, 2 @ 5lb+ and 2 under 5lb.


Also 3 Bream, 2 @ 6lb+ and 1 @ 5lb+ and a 1lb 3oz Roach

Kelvin’s latest catch

This weeks catch is from Little Park Main lake this time 2 decent Bream at 8lb 1oz and 6lb 9oz, 4 more at about 2lb 8oz each and a decent Roach.


Nice to see that the big old Bream in Little Park obviously had a successful spawn a few years ago, as I’ve never had small bream from the lake before.


Kelvin’s 8lb 1oz Little Park Bream.

Great day at Totham Pit

Great day at Totham Pit today, this little lot by 11am. Went on to land 2 more Tench and about 15 Roach all 8oz+ but lost 4 more Tench and a Carp in the weed :(

Thanks to Paul Kemp for the picture.


Biggest Tench 6lb 8ozish, Biggest Bream 7lbish, Rudd just over 1lb.

Great job on the trees by the way – Kelvin Willis.

One bream short of a ton

I have just received news that the CAA match at Beeleigh on Sunday was won by Chris Dyall with a top weight of 95lbs 4oz, 14 Bream the biggest weighing 10lbs.


Here are three of the Bream – we believe that 95lb 4oz is a river match record for the Chelmer & Blackwater canal, the next best weight that can be recalled is around 69lb.  If you know differently feel free to let our webmaster@maldonas.co.uk know.
