Don't Stop...
We've enjoyed a generally very mild Autumn and, thankfully, the warm westerly winds have brought plenty of much needed rain.

But clearly many of you have put your rods away for the Winter as many of our waters are devoid of members except perhaps on Sundays. Even Marford Farm has plenty of good swims free most days of the week.

This does mean you could be missing out on some great fishing and, be being at the water, you are helping to feed and protect our fish stocks. So don't hibernate, get out and give it a go.!!!!!!!

8lb 7oz Barbel caught at Marford farm on 2nd Dec. by Colin Helmke. A new Personal Best for Colin and a not bad picture considering it was on a camera phone.

Jack Fundrey caught his first ever pike in the 'pike pit' on 26th Nov. His father Chris reports it was caught on a roach dead bait from under a tree on the far bank. It weighed 6 1/2 lb.

VAC registrar Ken Mourton took time off of sending out new memberships to sample the roach fishing down at Marford Farm. No weight reported but clearly a very good sample.
