Well done to ‘Sophie the carp catching kid’ on landing 15 barbel to over 8lb on a recent evening trip to Marford Farm.
One to watch for the future for sure!
Verulam and Spotted Fin Partnership!
The Club are very pleased to announce a partnership with Spotted Fin, a local bait Company based in Abbots Langley. The partnership will initially involve them sponsoring a number of events including the Club Championship and Evening League. They will also support the Club coaching set up. In addition all Verulam members will be able to get a 10% discount off of all purchases made through the Spotted Fin website.
In return they will use our fisheries, mainly Riverside Road but also others, to develop baits and film promotional videos. Some coaching days are being considered with their brand ambassadors who include Simon Wilsmore and Jamie Hughes. We are also looking at ways to further develop their brand of carp and specialist bait.
They will be present at this year’s Open day at Riverside Road on Saturday July 13th.
Come down and say hello!

Unfortunately Troy Lake,
Denham has suffered what's believed to be a total fish kill; a result of de-oxygenation from an
algae bloom. The VAC GC are reviewing options for the future. Things have also been tough at Turnford with
being closed due to low water levels. If we get good rainfall this
autumn it will be reopened.
However, at our associated waters such as Alban lakes and
Timberlands the fishing has improved considerably after difficulties
in 2017. Later this year the club is aiming to circulate a web based
survey to members to determine which waters are perhaps not used as
much as we might think and, for example, where any current
restrictions might be a factor.
It is a requirement that all able-bodied
senior members undertake at least one working party per year.
This needs to be completed before end April 2019 to avoid a £40
levey on next season's membership fee.
Details of forthcoming work parties are circulated via eNews so
members need to ensure that they are receiving these regularly.
