Bog Grove will still produce a fish or two even in these conditions.

Howells is not for sale

In an effort to dispel some of the rumours that have been flying around Howells is not for sale.  The new Heybridge bypass will eventually be built close to Howells, and the building work at the end of Broad Street Green will expand to create a new garden suburb, but Howells lies outside of this development.

On the subject of Howells there is one Howells night permit left for this season so if you have been a member for two years, and have a clean record with us, and fancy doing the winter on Howells you can upgrade your existing standard night permit to a Howells night permit for an additional £30.  Please contact the membership secretary via webmaster@maldonas.co.uk on a first come first serve basis.

Elusive Little London Tench

It’s been a mission of mine for some time to have caught at least one tench out of every Maldon water that holds one. All of the other lakes came fairly easy but the Little London Tench has eluded me for some years. Until this week when fishing at long range on a sliding waggler I got one at 4lb 1oz along with a decent Bream at 6lb 2oz (see gallery) and some nice roach.

Mission accomplished! 

I’d be interested to know if anyone has more than one Tench out of Little London in a sitting as they are very elusive, this one was totally unmarked and looked like it had never been caught before.

Keepnet ban lifted on all venues

Keepnets can now be used at all of our fisheries.

Help with coaching juniors wishing to learn to fish

The coaching sessions organised by the Angling Coaching Initiative in conjunction with KDAA and MAS have been most successful since the first one held on the 19th May with up to ten participants at sessions.  Although ACI have a pool of Volunteer Coaches it is not sufficiently large enough to ensure they can provide one to one coaching particularly during the summer school holiday period owing to many of the volunteers being unavailable due to their own holidays and other commitments.  If you are able to help, even for just one or two sessions can you please contact Chris Burt on 07917 781299 or via email at chris@candjb.co.uk.  It is fun and most rewarding.

Future dates and venues are on the ACI website  https://anglingcoachinginitiative.co.uk/events-calendar  along with a blog of the sessions held to date.

The next two sessions where we more help would definitely be appreciated are next Wed 15th Aug at Rook Hall and on Wed 22nd Aug at Bog Grove.
