    Looking for the perfect gift for the angler in your family?

    Well, please don't buy them this !!!

    Send Some Snaps

    It's always nice to get some contributions from members.

    These two are reminders of the Summer of 2001; a cracking roach from Riverside by Brian Hill and life member Ash Adams with one of the few carp that didn't slip the hook on the club match back in October.

    Regarding the latter, it now seems that Paul Bangs' 54-8 bag of carp is the biggest winning weight recorded on a club match. Also, Roger Smith's 23lb carp caught on the pole on the same match has got to be the biggest fish weighed in on a club match. And, just to cap it all, club member Roger Brown entered and won an open on the same venue a couple of weeks later with, I think, around 240lb of carp !!

     

    Remember, the latest news from around the fisheries can be found on the VAC Hotline - 01727 835904 

    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. 

    Good to see a junior member Harry getting amongst the Smallford Pike. This one was just into double figures and was part of a catch of pike up to 15lb.
