It's a puzzle
that although the VAC is twice the size it was back in the late 90's the match
section has not grown significantly. In some ways this is a blessing as booking
suitable venues for club matches for 30 plus competitors is not as easy as it
might seem. And our home waters such as Riverside and Frogmore struggle to
accommodate more than 25 or so.
Nonetheless, it's important that members who have an interest in match
style fishing do not feel that they cannot join in the fun and every season we
welcome some fresh faces to the VAC match scene. What's really helping to keep
attendances high and matches fun, is that there's no 'elite' that keep winning
the pot each week. And what better evidence of this than the fact that of the 10
VAC Championship Matches held since June we have had 10 different winners.
The VAC hopefuls prepare for the peg draw at Alders Farm
With still four more scheduled
Championship matches to go, plus the likelihood of some 'ad-hoc' matches towards
the end of next season, it's not too late to come and have a go. We try to offer
a variety of venues including canals and rivers, as well as the popular carp 'baggin'
waters. Also, conscious of costs, where possible, we book venues less than 50
miles from St Albans and ask for just £6 for the optional pools.
We also welcome all members and we help
accommodate juniors who need to fish adjacent to a parent or guardian and
members with disability who are welcome to select an easy-access peg.
More details and all the results, including full match
write-ups, are on the VAC match pages. Just click the link on the left to learn
more. And perhaps you will be a winner on our popular Christmas fixture at
Riverside on December 9th?
