Howells and Slough House Bankside Warning

Howells is extremely waterlogged and boggy in places.  Please can members take care and use common sense when walking round and setting up so as not to churn the bank side and swims up too much please.

Also I am receiving reports that Slough House Farm is very muddy after all of the recent rain and the farmer is regularly accessing the site for sugar beet storage purposes.  Please proceed to your swim with caution especially if using a barrow which is likely to sink into the mud.

Finally the car park at Slough House West is very muddy due to winter tractor activity, you might want to avoid visiting at the moment unless you have a four wheel drive vehicle.

The toilet at Slough House Farm has been stolen

Please be aware that the toilet at Slough House Farm was stolen sometime between Fri evening 2nd Mar and today Tue 6th Mar. If anybody knows anyone that was fishing between these times please can you ask them if they saw anything suspicious and pass on any information to Ryan Boot on the phone number listed in the rulebook or by email to webmaster@maldonas.co.uk

Minutes of 2018 AGM

Our Annual General Meeting held on Sun 21st Jan at Great Totham Village Hall was a lively affair and was our best attended for many years with over 80 members present on the day.  For those members who couldn’t make it along here are the AGM 18 Minutes and the Fishery Management report 2018.

A blue hat was left behind after the meeting, this can be claimed back from the membership secretary or picked up at next years AGM if you can survive outside without it until then.

I was after Roach but…

Kelvin Willis wrote:  This 12lb Common gave me the run around on a size 18, 3lb bottom end and an ultra light waggler rod. Thought I’d go down to see if I could get some Slough House roach on the long range light waggler, ended up with no roach, 2 bites, this carp and an ugly 3lb tench (see gallery) on single red maggot. Not quite the day I had expected but a good one nonetheless. Worryingly there were 2 Cormorants having a field day down there today.
