Fishers Green, our consortium venue on
the River Lea is probably the best monster chub water in the UK
at the moment. Of course, it's not an easy venue but time and effort can
be rewarded with the biggest chub you will ever see. That was the
approach that member Darren Hales took and this season his time and
effort continue to be rewarded with a number of big chub including this
8.06 PB to follow up on earlier fish of 8.02, 7.02 and 6.08 plus a
number of big barbel to 16lb (see our July & August editions).
Location, location, location.
Amazingly, although the VAC is a St Albans
club only 394 of our nearly 2,000 current registrations are St Albans
addresses. A recent exercise to map out the spread of our members
identified, as perhaps expected, 60% located in Hertfordshire, nearly 350
with London addresses and 152 in Bedfordshire. We also have members in
Somerset, Hampshire, Dorset, Lincolnshire and......County Galway !
Another PB to report,
and a venue record as well, is VAC coach Gary Lilley with this 35.12
mirror from our new carp water near Bishop's Stortford;
Please note that Lancaster Lake is now available to all VAC members
on a pre-booking basis only via text to 07966 394717.
Check out the side-bar pictures (right) for snaps of the other fish Gary
and Darren have sent in plus great photos from other happy members.
Also reported, but sadly no photos, are barbel to over 11lb from Leasey
Bridge along with big roach to 1.08, carp to 23lb from Smallford and
Kempston plus one of 18lb from Frogmore. Remember, our fisheries
managers are delighted to hear of catches from their waters so please
let us know
