Environment Agency Rod Licence Reminder

Good morning all,
Iain Fraser, who baliffs the clubs running waters was disappointed to find one of our members fishing the Canal without a valid EA rod licence at the weekend.
They were under the impression that as the had an MAS membership, they did not need an EA rod licence. The problem was resolved there and then on the bank & they purchased their rod licence on the bank so all sorted.
Can we please remind all members that it is an offence to fish for any course species without a valid rod licence, so can we please remind all members that you MUST hold a valid EA rod licence to fish any MAS waters or any other clubs or day ticket waters.
The money from Rod licences is used to benefit all anglers & considering it’s not really a great deal of money and very easy to purchase let’s make sure all out members have one.
All the best & tight lines to you all.

URGENT ALL MEMBERS PLEASE TAKE NOTE AND BE VIGILANT PLEASE

URGENT!!! PLEASE TAKE NOTICE.
EA EMERGENCY CONTACT 0800807060.
ME 07793278430
Hi all , due to the current weather conditions for the next few days , we could potentially have issues with oxygen levels in our waters.
My main concern is Totham pit as the weed has really taken off in there this year and with current and predicted weather we could have a serious problem.
However we could have issues on any of our waters just the same.
If you see signs of gasping fish PLEASE contact the EA or me ASAP
We are taking regular oxygen tests and will be putting a aeration machine in the pit today.
From fish gasping to death you get a 6-8 hour window generally so really important for us all to work together to try and prevent fish loss.
Thanks Dan & MAS team.

Ricketts mere access and river angling parking

Afternoon ladies and gentlemen,

We’ve been speaking with the current leasee of Rickets Mere and apparently some of our members have been blocking the entrance gate to get access to the river.

Can we please ask all our members to be considerate to their access and find alternative parking spaces. We know it’s not easy and this isn’t any finger pointing to anybody in particular, but please make sure we all leave this access clear.

Many thanks in advance, good luck and tight lines for the new river season.

River fishing on the Chelmer & Blackwater Canal – Non MAS stretches

Dear members,

With the river season fast approaching, we have been asked to clarify the river stretches that MAS no longer have the rights to. These are mainly around the  Beeleigh Weir section as this is now only able to be fished under an Ilford & District ticket.

These sections are:

The triangle of land south side of Beeleigh weir itself up to and including ‘Neville’s cut’. Then continues down the ‘Dead end stretch’, and also down the tidal stretch that backs on to Maldon golf course. In addition, Also the river Blackwater upward of Beeleigh weir to above ‘Stockhall Farm’. This is the point where the Blackwater then becomes leased by MAS.

Please make sure that you adhere to these rules as there’s still some 14 miles on River & canal fishing that MAS do have the rights to.

If you have any questions please email us at webmaster@maldonas.co.uk

All the best & tight lines to you all

Sad news of the death of Dick Berris

Ladies and gentlemen,
You may have seen the very sad announcement from Wayne Berris that his father Dick has very sadly passed away and I’m sure all our thoughts are with him and his family.
After a brief discussion it has been agreed that the car park swim on Slough House Farm, will now be known as the Dick Berris swim or ‘Dicky’s’ in honour of him as it was his favourite swim on his favourite water.
I only met him once, but really enjoyed the brief time I spent with him. So now we have a lasting and fitting memorial.
R.I.P Dick and tight lines to you always.
