Sun 25th Sep is going to be a busy day on the Chelmer & Blackwater canal

The 25th Sep is going to be a busy day for our Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation.  As well as the Maldon Marathon there is the Triathlon which will be starting at Hoe Mill.  This involves canoeing and cycling which will disrupt the river from Hoe Mill to Paper Mill including Beeleigh Lock.  The Driberg cup match at Boreham will also be affected.

Thank you to Kim Naish for bringing this to our attention.

Part of canal closed on Sun 18th Sep

We have taken a match booking for this Sunday 18th September on the River Chelmer.  The stretches at Boreham Black Bridge, Papermills and Browns Wharf will be closed to non-competitors.  Thanks - Russell.

Possible traffic disruption on Sun 25th Sep

Members are reminded that the Maldon Half Marathon is being run on Sunday 25th Sep and this might disrupt the flow of traffic near some of our fisheries such as the Railway Pond, Howells and Little Park.  Any member looking to drive through Maldon or Heybridge could get delayed.  For more info and a map of the route please see http://www.maldonhalfmarathon.com/.  Members heading back towards Maldon after the Howells carp match might need to find an alternative route.   Thank you to Dennis Sherwood for drawing this event to my attention.

Carp match at Howells on weekend of 24th-25th September

Howells will be closed to non-competitors from 8am on Sat 24th Sep to 1pm on Sun 25th Sep for the 24 hour carp match.  The draw for swims will take place at 10am on Sat.  I believe that there are still a few places left so if you are interested please contact Dean Andrews on the number listed in the rulebook.  Remember that this is a rare opportunity for any member who hasn’t got a Howells night permit to fish an overnighter at the venue.


One of the many Commons that makes Howells the ideal venue for the 24 hour carp match.

Well done Bill

Congratulations to one of our members Bill Woollcott who fished the Division 2 AT National on the Fazeley Canal at Minworth, Birmingham and won his section.


Here is a photo of Bill showing off his medal!
