Vets National

Five members from Maldon Angling Society fished the Angling Trust Veterans National at Tunnel Barn Fishery, Warwick. Everyone gave a good account of themselves promoting Maldon AS with excellent results.

• Geoff Forman 1st in section with 22 kg
• Steve Holdon 1st in section with 28 kg
• Kim Naish 2nd in section 20 kg (pipped to the post by Geoff)
• Bill Woollcott and Roger Smith also gave good accounts of themselves

Bill, Kim, Steve and Roger at the end of the match, Geoff had to leave before the photo was taken!

A good time was had by all and we are looking forward to next year’s AT Veterans National which is being held at Partridge Lakes.  Thanks – Kim.

Please don’t dump leftover bait on the bankside

Members are reminded that dumping unwanted bait on the bank at the end of a session is breaking rule 7.3 – ‘Surplus bait must not be left on the bank’ as this encourages rodents around our fisheries and most of the rats are large enough already.
Our bailiffs are on the lookout for the couple who fished peg 16 at Little Park and departed leaving this pile of bait behind:

One bream short of a ton

I have just received news that the CAA match at Beeleigh on Sunday was won by Chris Dyall with a top weight of 95lbs 4oz, 14 Bream the biggest weighing 10lbs.


Here are three of the Bream – we believe that 95lb 4oz is a river match record for the Chelmer & Blackwater canal, the next best weight that can be recalled is around 69lb.  If you know differently feel free to let our webmaster@maldonas.co.uk know.

JP Tackle now open on Sundays

Our main agent JP Tackle is now open on Sunday mornings between 8am and midday for memberships, keys, guest tickets, day tickets for the canal, bait, tackle and so much more.

Concessionary match change

The concessionary match on Tuesday 26th July listed as Heybridge Basin will be changed to Papermill Lock.

Weeks of effort pay off for Paul at Brick Kiln Pond

Paul Frost wrote: I’m a new member who passes the Brick Kiln Pond as I travel to and from work. I often stop off for a quick scan of the pond to see what’s about and sometimes fish on the way home for a couple of hours.  I usually see a couple of unusual pale colour long slender fish cruising on the surface and finally managed to land one on the 6th June.  I didn’t really recognise the species but Brian at the Halstead tackle shop identifies it as an Albino Grass Carp.  It weighed in at a healthy 13.5lb and certainly put a smile on my face after spending weeks trying to tempt it.
