If you didn’t write your email address on your 2016-17 application/renewal form you might not have seen our January 2018 winter newsletter in which case here it is: MASNews31 Jan 2018 Web Version.  Members who sent an extra stamped self addressed envelope to the membership secretary should receive their copy in the post by the end of this week.


Julie Stuart secured the non-carp half price membership prize in this year’s photo competition with this fine pike from Totham Pit.

Keepnet update

At the January committee meeting it was unanimously agreed to lift the ban on keepnets with immediate effect until 31st March.  The keepnet ban had been introduced as early as possible following notification of a local outbreak of KHV (Koi Herpesvirus) however the water temperature has now dropped to well below the minimum danger level for transmitting KHV of 16 degrees so the ban has been lifted and will be reviewed at the 4th Apr committee meeting.

Beckingham Hall update

I can now give an update on Beckingham Hall but unfortunately it is not good news.  The reason we had to close the lake was because it was put up for sale and the landowner wanted to sell the lake without sitting tenants.   This week it was confirmed that the new owner has decided not to lease Beckingham Hall back to us as he has a relative that is into fishing and is going to run it as a six man syndicate.

We owned all of the fish in Beckingham Hall and were able to remove a number of fish when our lease was terminated.  137 carp were removed and 102 went into Totham Pit, 18 into Slough House West and 17 into Slough House Farm along with 25lb+ of silvers to Slough House West.

Changes at Little Park Top Lake

Following the sale of the field on the east bank bordering Little Park Top lake (over the footbridge on the left as you exit the car park) the east bank is now out of bounds to members.  Fishing is now from the west bank closest to the car park only.  A sign stating that the east bank is now private will be put up soon.  The sale of land does not affect the main lake with the island at all and members can still fish all around the main lake.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused, Little Park Top Lake has been fishing well recently following a stocking of silver fish.
