Update – 5th January 2021
Following the government’s announcement yesterday of another full Covid-19 lockdown, the Angling Trust has issued the following statement: “fishing is allowed as exercise so long as participants adhere to the rules on staying local, gathering limits, social distancing and limiting the time spent outdoors”.
Therefore, individual members of the MUAA are permitted to fish providing they stick to the rules issued by HM Government. However, they also state that as organised sporting gatherings are prohibited, match fishing is not permitted. Therefore we have no alternative but to cancel the next two competitions. A revised match programme is available on the Match Calendar page.
Please note that due to Covid restrictions there will not be an MUAA Committee meeting until the New Year. If any member has any issues they would like to raise, please contact Mick Perks at email@example.com
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.
The club expressed their appreciation to Sue Troughton, the riparian owner of the stretch of the river Severn at Holdfast used by the club, and she was invited to present the trophies to the winners.
The picture below shows Sue Troughton presenting the Club Champion Cup to Lee Harman.

Before you fish at Holdfast please check that your chosen peg is safe as the platforms can be disturbed or damaged by high river levels, passing boats and even passing people. Please report any pegs you consider unsafe to a committee member or via email to mchlPerks6@aol.com
Can all members please ensure that when fishing the Club water you clear and take away any rubbish you may have. Also, please take good care of the fish you catch by carefully unhooking and gently placing it in a fish friendly net.
