Learn how to fish

You might have caught some of Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse fishing for tench, bream, roach and rudd on TV last night and thought “I fancy giving that a go myself”.  If you did but you have no fishing tackle or any idea how to get started then the answer is at hand.  Contact Chris Burt at Angling Coaching Initiative who will be very happy to advise you further and can book you onto one of his angling coaching days.  All tackle will be provided for you to use free of charge on the day and you will only be asked to pay from £7.50 per session to cover the cost of the bait.  Chris is running several coaching days across a variety of Maldon AS and Kelvedon DAA fisheries and he can be contacted by phone on 07917 781299, by email at chris@candjb.co.uk, via the  Angling Coaching Initiative website which can be found at https://anglingcoachinginitiative.co.uk/ or by post at 3 Great Cob, Chelmsford, Essex CM1 6LA.


A happy student with a fine Tench landed at Rook Hall during a coaching session earlier this month.

There’s no stopping Kelvin

All from Totham Pit today (Wed 13th Jun) from the swim directly behind the container on method feeder and 6mm white chocolate wafters. 8 Tench, including an 8lb 1oz monster (also my PB), 3 @ 6lb+, 2 @ 5lb+ and 2 under 5lb.


Also 3 Bream, 2 @ 6lb+ and 1 @ 5lb+ and a 1lb 3oz Roach


For all of Kelvin’s fish photos please visit our gallery.

Kelvin’s latest catch

This weeks catch is from Little Park Main lake this time 2 decent Bream at 8lb 1oz and 6lb 9oz, 4 more at about 2lb 8oz each and a decent Roach.


Nice to see that the big old Bream in Little Park obviously had a successful spawn a few years ago, as I’ve never had small bream from the lake before.


Kelvin’s 8lb 1oz Little Park Bream.

Rivers re-open on 16th June

Don’t forget that the Chelmer & Blackwater river/canal and our stretches of the River Blackwater re-open to members on the glorious 16th June.  A big thank you to Dean and Ken for strimming our car park at Station Road in readiness for the off.


The car park should be large enough for 6 to 7 cars when it’s stripped right back to the perimeter fence line.

Rook Hall will be closed on Sun 17th Jun

All three lakes at Rook Hall will be closed to members on Sunday 17th June (Fathers Day) for the Blackwater Country Show.  More information regarding the show can be found at http://www.blackwatercountryshow.co.uk/.  Angling Coaching Initiative will be running a coarse fishing coaching session on the trout lake next to the Maldon Angling Society stall on the day.

Kelvin’s great year for Tench and Ide continues at Slough House Farm

Continuing a great year for Tench this time at Slough House with these six, biggest 4lb 9oz including (pretty sure) my old mate “Chin Tench”.


Also weighed these two Ide at 2-6-4 and 2-10-8 s two for just over 5lb.
