Another Good Year
As I write this, the sun is setting
on the end of another river season. It's March 14 and our
fabulous barbel, chub and roach on our Lea, Ivel & Ouse fisheries
will get three-months break.
Our books have just been closed and great to report that our numbers
are consistent with last year and already we are receiving enquiries
from prospective new members for the new season.
Our numerous fisheries have performed well and interest in our
Events plus our Match and Trout fishing are higher than ever.
This season our extensive portfolio of venues was enhanced with a
return to our books of Jack's Lake in Hadley Wood, Cockfosters and
we hope to announce another great local water before the membership
year starts on June 16.
As the weather starts to warm up our team of qualified angling
coaches will be announcing their 'classes' for the Summer months and
we are planning an Open Day at Smallford showcasing numerous angling
techniques from zig-rigging for carp to long-pole fishing for bream

headline picture this issue, just a reminder of the beauty of
the seasons as we leave Winter behind and anticipate Summer.

In mid April the General Committee will be seeking approval for new
season rates and pricing structure (some major changes are being
considered) which will then allow us to go to print on membership
forms, seek direct debit payments and issue renewal packs.
All in all, there's plenty to look forward to so if you are
looking to join the VAC please check back towards the end of April
for any updates as we do try to get our 'early-starter' options out
as soon as possible.

This issue I've selected a few of the best snaps from 2015. Back in June Steve
Brooks bagged this 16lb barbel from the Ivel.
The carp at Marford keep growing. Richard Denny had this mirror at 16.10.
Another Lea carp was this 10lb Koi from Leasey Bridge for Barry Arthurs.
Our hard-working fisheries manager, Barry Killinger, put in an appearance at the
first Riverside match of the Summer to win with almost 40lb.
