       The 'Nearly Man'

    Trevor Davis had a remarkable run this Summer during the Wednesday evening league  - three 2nd's on the trot, two with exactly the same weight (9lb 10oz). 

    But even Trevor has to admit it was not just skill when he landed this 7lb Ghostie after a 15 minute battle. Foul-hooked just five minutes from the whistle, Trevor was forced to add sections until, at 16m the carp finally stopped. Not that I bear a grudge or anything but it did push me down to third place on the night .....

     Always the bridesmaid but never the bride..

    River Ivel

    The VAC Fisheries Committee are delighted to announce that we now have one and a half miles of the River Ivel in Bedfordshire and will be open, to full members only, sometime during September. Early indications suggest a good head of quality chub with some bream, roach, dace and gudgeon.

    At this time of writing some of the fine detail is still to be agreed but maps and other details will be posted on this website later in August and also sent out to members within the next couple of weeks.

    Your contribution here?

    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. 

    Here's Jenny with a fat Frogmore pole-caught common from Peg 15

    So long as no one else submits a picture you'll continue to get favorites from my collection !
