Bog Grove update

Bog Grove update:

Firstly, apologies if your fishing has been affected by the works taking place in the woods.

Currently the contractor is having to close the lake at short notice (sometimes on the day) when a haulier confirms he is coming to take a load of logs away. Without closing the water and keeping the car park clear, they are unable to manoeuvre the lorries.

This week it had been confirmed lorries will be in there Wed. Thu and Friday so the lake will be closed.

As soon as we know of any further closures we will announce them here and on the website

Once again, apologies for the disruption.

MAS Facebook Page

Dear members,

We would like to announce that Maldon Angling Society now have a brand new Facebook page,

Maldon Angling Society’

Please check it out and, obviously, feel free to join. It’s going to be a great site where like minded members can share catch reports, tips tricks and advice, so come on in. All types and disciplines of anglers are very welcome.

And don’t forget to please also join the sister club facebook group:

Maldon Angling Society Matches and Competitions’

Where our new Competition Secretary, Kelvin, will have all sorts of club competitions from a variety of matches for the puritan Match angler, Specimen and Carp angler. Specimen hunt type competitions and also other entertaining items such as ‘Show us your tackle’ and ‘Size doesn’t matter (apparently)’

So something for everyone involved in the club, whilst trying to make it as fun and inclusive as possible for every discipline of angler.

We look forward to seeing you there.

All the very best and tight lines to you all.

Tight lines to you all and stay safe.

MAS Committee Vacancies



Due to changes in circumstances, it gives me great sadness to inform the membership that Ryan (Fisheries Manager) and Martin (Head Bailiff) have decided to stand down from the committee with immediate effect.

On behalf of the committee and the membership, we thank you both for the hard work and dedication you have given on behalf of MAS. Both of you have done an excellent job which has been greatly appreciated by everyone. Hopefully, we will see you come back at some point in the future.

This now leaves three vacant positions on the committee which we need to fill, so we are now actively reaching out to the membership, seeking volunteers who have the passion and dedication to join the committee and help manage Maldon Angling Society.

If you are interested in getting hands on and have the time available to help manage the club, please email to register your interest in any of the roles below, with an overview of your experience and what you will bring to the team.



Our current Chairman will be standing down at the next AGM after some decades of loyal service to the Society, so we would like to hear from individuals who can take on this challenging role in due course, which involves:

  • Leading the committee and setting the direction and ethos of the Society
  • Ensuring that due diligence is observed in providing members with value for money
  • Acting as main liaison point with our landlords and partner clubs
  • Ensuring the smooth running and interaction between key roles
  • Chairing the AGM and committee meetings


Fishery Manager Responsibilities:

  • Monitoring the condition of our waters, stock, banks, access tracks and gates.
  • Establishing and coordinating a team of fishery management officers to assist with managing the venues.
  • Coordinating work parties to undertake general works required to keep venues maintained, accessible and fishable for the membership.
  • Ensuring health and safety is always adhered to.
  • Creating a Fishery Management plan of works (and stocking where required for each venue.
  • Monitoring water quality, dissolved oxygen levels.
  • Proposing any major works at committee meetings for discussion and approval prior to works being carried out.
  • Attend the monthly committee meetings.


Head Bailiff Responsibilities:

  • Managing and leading a team of bailiffs to cover all venues to ensure anglers at each venue are current members and adhering to the society rules.
  • Establishing dedicated bailiffs for each venue.
  • Reporting to the committee any member who is in violation of rules which cannot be handled with discretion or a verbal warning on the day of the incident.
  • Hold monthly bailiff meetings so any issues or ideas the bailiffs have can be brought to the monthly committee meeting for further discussion\action.
  • Attend the monthly Committee meetings.


All three of these post are a great opportunity to be directly involved with shaping the future of Maldon Angling Society.

We look forward to hearing from you.

2nd August – Notice of disruption at Little Parks Main Lake

On Sunday 2nd August we will be testing out our pump at little parks main lake. We will be there for a couple of hours and there will be some noise and disruption. We are sorry for this, but we need to test it. And make sure the first response team know how to set it up if we had an oxygen crash on a water. Please do NOT come to the lake to see us in action. As social distancing still applies, and we don’t want everyone there. Just a selected team of bailiffs and those that may be fishing. So, this is a warning for anyone that may be fishing there Sunday. I am sure there will be some pictures and videos of it in action next week. Have a great weekend stay safe in the sunshine and I hope you all get to wet a line. Many thanks MAS Team
