    Congratulations to Trevor Davis on winning the Summer Evening League with ? points. More details here.

    But whilst Trevor has been bagging many have struggled as the fish wised up after the excellent result of June. This is best illustrated by the results for the Riverside Rd pairs when 10lb 8oz was top out of 34 anglers with plenty of DNW's (did not weigh).

    Even Frogmore stayed true to form on a glorious Thursday evening, the last match in the Summer series, when most struggled on the pole for a few pounds of bits. Not Dan Patrick though who had three good carp on floating baits for 17lb.

    It doesn't look 9lb but Dan is well over six foot !!!

    Safety First @ VAC!

    A small number of VAC waters have power cables crossing or passing close by. It's previouslly been considered that they are too far away or too obvious to be a safety threat. 

    Following enquiries made with the NFA (click here) the club's general committee have been obliged to commission professional consultancy on the potential risks. Safety notices have already been erected at Smallford, Marford Farm and on the Flit.

    In the meantime, until the risks are fully understood, it may be necessary for some pegs to be closed and members are asked to respect and understand the reasoning behind this.

    For the latest details check the VAC Hotline on 01727 835904

    II'd Rather Be Fishing

    I'm still awaiting submissions from members for contributions to this web site. Until they start flooding in you'll have to put up with snaps from my own collection, taken (if you're interested) with a Kodak DC210+ digital camera.

    Any articles, photos and comments would be welcome. With a thousand members I'm sure some of you must be capable of producing some quality photos of fish from club waters.
