Totham Pit work party & siltex application on Sunday 29th October

Brilliant effort by everybody today at the work party, well done to Deano & his team for putting this all together with a great work plan for the pit initially and a great work party today to get the ball rolling, the head count was 23 which made it possible to make relatively short work of the jobs at the top of Deans list of works to be carried out, as well as 4 tonnes of siltex being introduced today making it a very productive day indeed, many thanks to everyone that got involved, Happy Angling! long live the pit - Jamie 

Autumn reminder

Members are reminded that Rook Hall and Whitehouse Farm reservoir are now closed for the 4 month duck shooting season and will re-open on Thursday 1st Feb 2018.  There are also occasional duck shoots at Slough House West and Little London so please keep an eye out for signs at the entrance to these fisheries, especially on Fridays.

Night fishing at Bog Grove has now started and runs through until the 30th April 2018.

3 rods are now allowed on all venues for all standard night permit and Howells night permit holders as well as for members who have purchased the £30 winter 3 rod upgrade.  Regardless of which night permit you have you can use 3 rods on all venues including Howells.

The sun sets on another summer’s fishing at Rook Hall.

Beckingham Hall update

Beckingham Hall remains closed until further notice but hopefully some better news will appear here soon.  Sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Chelmer & Blackwater Close Season

Members of Maldon AS, Chelmsford AA, Kelvedon DAA, Colchester APS and day ticket anglers are reminded that the last day of fishing on the Chelmer & Blackwater river/canal was Tuesday 14th March.  The Environment Agency will be enforcing the traditional 3 month close season between the 15th March and 15th June 2017 on the entire river/canal network.

Fortunately 16 of our stillwaters remain open between the 15th March and 15th June so MAS members (who have rejoined for the 2017-18 season) will not have to hang up their rods for 3 months.
