Deputy Treasurer still required

We are still actively seeking a new Treasurer to take over from Simon when he stands down at the end of this season.  If you would like to find out what the role entails please contact either the Treasurer, Secretary or Chairman on one of their numbers listed in the rulebook.  The sooner we find a deputy the longer he/she will have to shadow our existing Treasurer.  All volunteers from the membership are welcome.

New Hall Reservoir CLOSED

Unfortunately we can no longer fish New Hall Reservoir at Purleigh after receiving this note from the owners:

We have had a discussion regarding the reservoir at New hall and its use as a fishing lake.  Unfortunately we can no longer continue to allow it to be used for public fishing.

The extensive work needed to comply with our health and safety policy (especially to safely access the banks on the sewage works side) combined with ongoing maintenance and the need to increase security around the vineyard makes it uneconomical to offer for public use.

I hope you understand this decision and that it has not been taken lightly.  Please take this notice as cancellation of the agreement between New hall Vineyards and Maldon Angling Society.

Kind Regards – The Owners.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused to members and ask that you no longer visit the lake with immediate effect.

Nice 23lb 3oz out of Whitehouse Farm

Had a nice 23lb 3oz out of Whitehouse Farm yesterday (Wednesday 24th) wasn’t really prepared for it, not being a carp man, on 6lb line, 10 foot quiver with a hybrid feeder, 2mm pellets with coconut sticky mix flavour and a size 14 hook and sweet corn.

Took me a while to get in but was chuffed with it. Lovely condition.

Thanks to the chap who took the picture. Sorry I didn’t ask his name.   Cheers - Ian.
