Coronavirus Update – 30th May 2020

As a consequence of updated guidance received from the Angling Trust, match fishing can recommence under controlled conditions. The first series of matches will be on the River Severn at Holdfast starting on Sunday 21st June and ending on Sunday 6th September-see the Match Calendar page for the list of dates. 

The conditions under which matches can take place are:

  • Social distancing must be observed at all times
  • There will be no cash transactions. A record will be kept of those members fishing matches and they will be billed after the final match in the series on Sun 21st September 2020. Entry to the pools will be £5.00 per match (as in past seasons) so covering the first seven matches at Holdfast equates to £35.00 payable after the final match there.
  • The draw will be made by the match steward only. Anglers must make their way to their allotted peg immediately after the draw while observing the social distancing rules.
  • At the weigh in, anglers are asked to retrieve their keepnet from the river, load the fish into the weigh bag and retreat at least 2m to allow the steward to weigh the fish. A second steward will record the weight. After the stewards have retreated, the angler may then return the fish to the river.
  • No pay outs to winners will be made until after the final match in the series and after all monies due have been collected.

MUAA AGM and Presentation Evening – Thursday 25th April 2019

Malvern Anglers gathered at Newtown Club for their annual general meeting and trophy presentation. After a welcome by club chairman Ian Goddard and positive reports by club secretary Mick Perks and treasurer John Shaw, the match secretary was pleased to report a very successful year of competitions. The previous year had seen an increased number of participants in club matches that had been held on a variety of different river and pool venues. In particular, the matches had been competed in a good spirit with many close finishes and indeed, the 11 club trophies had been won by 10 different people.
