Dyofix applied at Rook Hall

We have applied Dyofix to the front and middle lakes at Rook Hall this afternoon, hopefully it will keep the weed growth down.  I will monitor and top up as necessary – Peter (Rook Hall Head Bailiff).

Dyofix is a coloured dye which helps prevent sunlight reaching the bottom of the lake and in doing so inhibits weed growth at this time if year.  We have opted to use ‘Special C’ Dyofix this year having used other colours previously with varying degrees of success.

Voluntary Coaching

I can now confirm that Sport England have officially approved the grant application for these coaching sessions.

I am delighted to advise that we have set up a coaching scheme for Junior anglers. This is a joint venture with Kelvedon & District Angling Association & Maldon Angling Society and the plan is to hold coaching sessions throughout the May-October period on a variety of waters, split between the two clubs. Those enrolled will be welcome at all sessions, & we’ll cater for both novices and those who already fish.

Angling Coaching Initiative 2018.04.29 Flyer

We will be running this through accredited Angling Trust Level 2 Coach’s Graham Garnham & Chris Burt, who both hold Enhanced DBS checks, Safeguarding & Protecting Children, First Aid course etc.

We’ll be teaching them everything to get them hooked, from starter sessions using a 4 metre whip, onto full tuition on float rods, feeders, and pole fishing. Every variation we can in fact, the aim is to capture their interest and give them a sport for life!

So if you would like to enrol into the scheme please let us know, parents who’d like to fish too are welcome, though you might have to share the same swim. There will be nominal charges only for bait and tackle replacement, this is a voluntary scheme.

We need Volunteer Assistants as well, if you’d be prepared to help at some or all the sessions, can you please contact me? You would only do as many or as few sessions as you want. We are already funding three of our Volunteers to take the Angling Trust level 1 Coaching qualification, to strengthen our team. We plan to role this scheme out to other clubs too in the future so you can join us with that in mind.

High water at Little Park now on the move

Thank you to Ryan and Ken for clearing the blocked overflow pipe at Little Park which had started to flood.


Hopefully the water level will return to normal in the next day or two.

Howells gate

The Howells gate is regularly being left unlocked by members, not farm workers.  While we appreciate that the padlock can be a bit tricky to close at the best of times, the next person caught leaving the gate unsecured will be made an example of - The Howells Bailiffing Team.
