(it's that man again).
No, not the 40's radio show
but VAC bailiff Keith Speer again with yet another stunning
catch. This cracking barbel, weighing 13.04, was Keith's reward
for a trip up to Felmersham and is the biggest from this stretch
that I know of.
Of course, if you know better and
had a bigger one then why haven't you told us? Also, don't forget
that Mark Jones is compiling a list of record fish from VAC
waters so please report your catches.

phone yet only one pic has been sent in for this month. This is young Cameron Moxom with a cracking six pounder from Frogmore.

pride of place on the new Verulam Carp web site.
Just like the weekly fishing papers
the VAC now has a supplement site aimed specifically at carp
fans.. Chris Knight has spent many hours setting this
up so click above and take a look and let Chris know what you
