Spreading the cost: If your membership fees total over £45 you can spread the cost by paying with 3 cheques, 2 of which are post-dated. Simply divide your total fee by 3 and send 3 cheques, i.e. Adult (£78) = one £26 cheque dated today and two £26 cheques dated one and two months hence, e.g. today’s cheque = 1st January, post dated cheques = 1st February and 1st March.

Night fishing at Totham Pit all year round (max 3 nights per session)

Members under the age of 16 cannot buy a night permit. These must be purchased on their behalf by a current adult night permit member.

Single night tickets are NOT AVAILABLE (from 6 May 2010).

Life memberships are still available for a one off payment of 10 times the current adult fee (£780). This payment can be spread over 7 months using our post-dated cheque scheme. We then pledge to spend the whole of your £780 on fish stocks to improve one of our fisheries in your lifetime. We may even be able to add fish to a lake of your choice (Environmental Agency & fishery management regulations permitting). Please note that this scheme does not include night fishing and you will be required to return your card to the membership secretary once a year for updating.

Agents: If you prefer to join in person you may rejoin at JP Tackle in Maldon but please remember that Howells night permits are only available directly from the membership secretary.

Guest tickets are priced at £8 per day or £5 for under 16′s and concessionaries aged 65+.  These are available from the Membership Secretary, local tackle shops and if you have a Paypal account online by clicking here. Guest tickets must be purchased in advance of fishing and you can only take one guest at a time. Guests can claim the value of one guest ticket as discount if they decide to join the society and the ticket is submitted with their application form.

The membership secretary does his best to return postal applications within a few days.

Half price winter tickets are available from 1st October and run until 31st March following.
