The River Blackwater through Benton Hall Golf Club is NOT a MAS fishery

Following one of our members getting caught fishing the River Blackwater on Benton Hall Golf Club, who was under the false belief that this is one of our river stretches, we can confirm that it isn’t.  Our stretches of the River Blackwater are at Station Road, Wickham Bishops and Wickham Hall in Langford.

Ban on braided line lifted

A good point was raised from the floor of the AGM regarding drop shotting, which is best carried out using braided mainline, and the committee promised to review the rule banning braided mainline at the Feb committee meeting.  As a result of that review the ban has been lifted and braided mainline can now be used across all of our fisheries.  Existing rule 6.3 will not appear in next season’s rulebook.

Brick Kiln Pond to close to members on 30th Nov 2018

The owner of Brick Kiln Pond has notified us that he is selling the pond and the land around it.  The new owners wish to reserve the pond for their own employees and do not want anyone else to have access.  Members can fish Brick Kiln until the end of November but please do not fish there after this date.

Howells is not for sale

In an effort to dispel some of the rumours that have been flying around Howells is not for sale.  The new Heybridge bypass will eventually be built close to Howells, and the building work at the end of Broad Street Green will expand to create a new garden suburb, but Howells lies outside of this development.

On the subject of Howells there is one Howells night permit left for this season so if you have been a member for two years, and have a clean record with us, and fancy doing the winter on Howells you can upgrade your existing standard night permit to a Howells night permit for an additional £30.  Please contact the membership secretary via webmaster@maldonas.co.uk on a first come first serve basis.
