Toadless Brings Moor Joy
The largest confirmed fish in Verulam waters, Toadless* the Leather, has been
banked by Moor Mill regular, John Stacey, at a new peak weight of 43lb.
After a number of sessions on the Island Pit, John followed his instincts to
shift to the east bank of Moor Mill's Leather Pit and struck lucky with this
much sort-after fish.
Of course, there are some who will
tell you stories of even bigger fish in some of our other waters Just seeing
them of course doesn't count, on the mat is where it's at !!

for carp. They tend to show to corn, worm or floating bait like crust and dog
biscuit. Virtually all are caught to the far bank features. For chub try
introducing some chopped worm and try double caster or a segment of worm and
caster on the hook and you may still hook a carp. Tench to float fished corn.
Roach to float fished maggot and punched bread. Hemp is worth trying in the

Steve Burfoot is back on these pages
again with this cracking bag from the River Ivel. Caught on pole tactics on a
stretch near Biggleswade, Steve found the river 'just right' a few days before
the season ended to land chub and bream to almost 6lb.
Above is Steve's travelling partner
and VAC Match Committee Chairmen Brian Lakin. Brian was just one peg up from
Brian yet only landed roach including these two 2lb'ers. As with Steve, pole
tactics to the far bank with caster and maggot brought results.
Remember VAC members can fish much
of the Ivel thanks to our affiliation to the IPA.
