The MAS committee, like all our members were bitterly disappointed when we found out that Howells Lake was to be sold by the landowner. It had always been one of our premier carp waters and many of you have enjoyed impressive catches over the years.

The committee have been working hard to find a replacement and are delighted to announce that we have re-secured the lease for Langford Long Lake.

As some of you will know, MAS used to have the fishing rights for this water, but unfortunately, we lost it, due to the actions of one of our members. It was then given over briefly to a syndicate, who again managed to lose the water.

‘Long Lake’ is located to the to the south of Little Park, and you can just see it on the left, as you turn right by the concrete pad to access Little Park. It is a mixed fishery of approximately 8.5 acres with some fifteen swims, two small islands and is stocked with a good head of Carp up to 30lbs, some particularly good Roach, Bream, perch and other silvers, so will be a fantastic addition to the club. We have worked incredibly hard to secure this water, and hopefully it will fill the gap left by losing Howells.

The western bank (Red line) will be strictly out of bounds to all anglers, in order to avoid the business activities undertaken at that end. There is some work to do to improve the swims, but it will be available to fish from Monday 7th February 2022.

We ask all members to be patient with us, with any improvement work and adhere strictly to the rules.

Please note ANY members not with prior approval, found on the lake, EVEN WALKING AROUND IT prior to the 7th, will be brought before the committee for disciplinary action.

Additionally, ANY member found breaching any of the access rules, or found within the out of bounds area,

will also be brought before the Committee and could face action from the club including a potential ban, so you HAVE been warned.

We will not tolerate any over-zealous members, ruining this hard-won water for the rest of the club.

Access is strictly from Maypole road, as per the entrance to Little Park and parking will be on the grass verge alongside the track on the north bank, which is clearly sign posted.

We hope that this will again, become one of our premier waters for many seasons to come and are looking forward to seeing the catch reports.

Environment Agency Rod Licence Reminder

Good morning all,
Iain Fraser, who baliffs the clubs running waters was disappointed to find one of our members fishing the Canal without a valid EA rod licence at the weekend.
They were under the impression that as the had an MAS membership, they did not need an EA rod licence. The problem was resolved there and then on the bank & they purchased their rod licence on the bank so all sorted.
Can we please remind all members that it is an offence to fish for any course species without a valid rod licence, so can we please remind all members that you MUST hold a valid EA rod licence to fish any MAS waters or any other clubs or day ticket waters.
The money from Rod licences is used to benefit all anglers & considering it’s not really a great deal of money and very easy to purchase let’s make sure all out members have one.
All the best & tight lines to you all.

ME 07793278430
Hi all , due to the current weather conditions for the next few days , we could potentially have issues with oxygen levels in our waters.
My main concern is Totham pit as the weed has really taken off in there this year and with current and predicted weather we could have a serious problem.
However we could have issues on any of our waters just the same.
If you see signs of gasping fish PLEASE contact the EA or me ASAP
We are taking regular oxygen tests and will be putting a aeration machine in the pit today.
From fish gasping to death you get a 6-8 hour window generally so really important for us all to work together to try and prevent fish loss.
Thanks Dan & MAS team.
