Early Renewers

Thank you to the 60 members who renewed early at the AGM, or by printing off a renewal form from this website, as this has saved us over £20 on postage which equates, at todays prices, to over 100 ide to stock into either Slough House Farm, Whitehouse Farm, Bog Grove or Heron Hall.  We are hoping to buy 7,000 fish in total, subject to availability, to stock into these four venues and Rook Hall before the weather warms up and makes fish movements unwise.  Full details, and hopefully some photos, will be posted on this website following delivery.

Slough House Farm – just one of five venues earmarked to receive more silver fish for next season.

Heron Hall Test Fish

The newly acquired Heron Hall Lake saw three skilled matchmen test the water on Sunday as a potential different venue for matches. After four hours Kim Naish had brought over 13lb of Rudd to the net and altogether over 30lb of fish were netted.

 We now look forward to using this new lake for matches.

New lake Heron Hall now open

We are pleased to announce that this attractive 3 acre lake with an island in Tolleshunt Major is now open to members following several months hard work by the owner and our fishery management team building swims and installing an access track and secure car park.

The lake has a good depth of water up to about 14ft with lily pads and surrounding trees. The stock includes carp, tench and rudd but is still largely an unknown quantity. We will, as usual, monitor catch levels and consider adding extra stock if necessary.

Directions:  Continue past the entrance to Beckingham Hall Reservoir, heading towards Tolleshunt D’Arcy. Go around the double bend at the bottom of the hill and continue up Beckingham Road. At the top of the hill, about half a mile before reaching Tolleshunt D’Arcy, the entrance to the fishery is through a gate on the left hand side of the road. There is a rough lay-by opposite. Once through the gate (which must be locked behind you), turn immediately left and follow the track to the end of the field where there is a parking area. The lake is about a 100 yard walk from the car park. Fishing times are 5am to 10pm with no night fishing.  Under no circumstances should you try to access the lake using the farm road as this is strictly out of bounds to members.

A map of how to get to Heron hall was shown to members at the AGM, for those that missed it here is the Heron Hall Map.  This map will appear in the new 2012 rulebook.
