  • New Riverside Rd Three Hour Match Record

    The first evening match of the current season was a close contest with two 30lb plus weights being recorded.  Top on the night was Ray Cormack who set a new record for the venue with an all roach catch and he also won a case of groundbait from Angling Times.

    Suffice to say that the exclusive Clubman winner's cap is too small !!!

    See Match Reports for all the results of club events. Not that I featured highly in the recent Pairs Match. After four hours for 8oz at Riverside Rd, Peg 3 I packed up and popped down to Marford Farm with my son Joe. Three hours later we had carp of 7lb, 7-8 and barbel to 3-8.

    Women & Children First!

    The VAC have always recognised the need to encourage juniors for they are our adult members of the future.

    We do this in a number of ways, for example, children under 12 can fish club waters free of charge when accompanied by an adult member.

    Also, the club runs a number of Junior, Lady and OAP matches throughout the season and the first this Summer at Frogmore was won by Sue Jones with   13lb 12oz. Second with 9lb 9oz was 9 year old Ernie Arrowsmith and 8 year old Jenny Kiddle was third with 3lb 12oz.  Weights were generally disappointing but the fact that Sue landed three & lost six other carp proves that the fish can be hooked when you get the method right.

    II'd Rather Be Fishing

    Now some of you reading this might think that I'd rather be updating this web site than go fishing. Let me assure you that's not true. So make my life easier (please) by submitting your contributions.

    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. To start the ball rolling here's a great composition of a chub from Marford Farm by member Jim Bristow.
