The Fisher King
VAC vice-president Keith Speer
has featured on this site a number of times over the years and his
'fame' in the media has brought him many jibes from his fishing
Another great year of the VAC as membership numbers rush past the 2,150
number. If you're looking to join then you may wish to know that, as
well as postal applications, you can sign-up at either Verulam Tackle Shop in St Albans
or Colney Tackle in Hazeldine Rd, London Colney. For all the details
please click the Subscriptions link above. Please be reminded that all
able-bodied adult members are expected to undertake at least one
work-party before the end of April and failure to do so attracts a
work-party levy when renewing membership equal to the prevailing joining
fee. This is to ensure that work-party obligations are not avoided by
simply rejoining as a new member.
However, none would deny that Keith really is a King amongst men
when one considers the results his all-round skills. His recent
two-page spread in the
Angling Times is not the first and he has
featured a number of times on 'Tight
Lines' on Sky Sports. Proficient as a float angler,
Keith also is highly skilled in lure fishing, fly fishing and has
won many a match in his time.
It's no surprise that the most popular 'teach-in' the VAC offers
it's members is Keith's stick-float clinic and Keith regularly
practices what he preaches with stunning results. Two years ago it
was a 19lb barbel, this January this stunning 7.02 chub.
As with all the great fish we feature, this was caught on a VAC
water. Whilst it's fair to say that, currently, you are not likely
to break the carp or pike record from a VAC water one of our venues
does hold the UK crucian carp record and your VAC ticket gives you
access to waters that possibly hold record barbel, chub, dace, and
gudgeon. Add that to 3lb+ roach, 5lb+ perch and 18lb+ bream and you
can see why the VAC is still growing in membership (and adding new
waters) when many others are shrinking.
