2021/22 Membership – Committee notice

Dear Society members,

It was decided at our most recent committee meeting that the membership will be closed to new members as of the 31st December 2020 & then capped at 1000 for next season. We currently stand at around 1050. (Historically we know that not everyone will renew). With regards to night permits. The existing 180 night permit holders will be given the opportunity to renew their membership and night permit before 1st April. If any of the 180 do not renew, then these will be offered to those who have contacted Paul Kyffin and placed their name on the waiting list (on a first come first served basis)

▪️We will also be selling 10 Junior night tickets next season @ £40 each, on top of the 180 adult night tickets. Please read our relevant rules though regarding junior anglers and night fishing.

Please join/renew early to avoid disappointment for next season, which starts April 1st 2021.

Tight lines!

Rule focus and reminder, please read


This is never aimed at anyone in particular, just focusing on the rules deemed the most broken, by the Head Bailiff.
Any rule which has particular prominence at the time.

Today we’re going to focus on GATES and LOCKS

Rule 4.1 Gates

All members will lock Society gates on entering and leaving the waters

We have had numerous problems with gates being left open on our waters recently.

Please lock them on your arrival and departure, we seem to always get the following excuses.
▪️I left it open for a friend.
▪️It was already open when I arrived/departed so I left it that way.
Both of these are UNACCEPTABLE. If it does happen to be already unlocked for any reason please lock it, AND report it to a bailiff if at all possible so they can try to ascertain who it was that left it open.

▪️If you are using a combination lock, once you have locked it again, then please jumble the numbers up. Theres no point in having a combination lock if the users of it leave the numbers on the opening code.
We see this time and time again, it takes seconds!

▪️If you find a lock, faulty, broken or damaged, then please call the site specific Head Bailiff.

▪️If you have a key that doesn’t work in one of our few gates with key locks, then please also let us know. The gates with keys are because the landowner prefers it that way, we have no choice in the matter.

Please remember there is NO excuse for leaving a gate or lock open under any circumstance.

The Bailiffs and Comittee will take a hard stance on anyone found to be leaving gates or locks open.

Thanks in advance for your co-operation.

MAS Committee notice


We understand that there are Facebook Groups affiliated to certain MAS waters directly. Within these groups are previous comittee members and bailiffs that continue to want to work against the will of the current comittee.
Any views expressed in these groups are not the thoughts of the current comittee, but we encourage these views to be aired directly and privately to the current comittee where they can and will be addressed.

To any current members who are members of these groups, the current and ONLY public Facebook groups that we do endorse are called ‘Maldon Angling Society’ and ‘Maldon Angling Society Matches and Competitions’

All the best and as usual, tight lines!

Committee Notice

There will be a small working party on Slough House West this coming Sunday (15th of November) from 9am.

This is in order to re-open some swims that have become overgrown and unfishable and is for the benefit of all society members.

We ask all members to please avoid fishing or taking a look around the lake that day.

Usually we would ask for volunteers, but on this occasion, sadly not, due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Tight Lines!
