    "Ivel Be Back"









    At long last we can announce that the club's new water on the River Ivel in Bedfordshire is open to members. Over a mile of river near Sandy is available to members following agreement with the Kingfisher AC, controlling syndicate.

    Committee members Clive Smith and Barry Killinger caught in the act erecting new signs

    The reputation of the VAC as a responsible club was key to us gaining access to this water and all members who visit the fishery are asked to be extra vigilant in following the rules, parking and access regulations. Full details and maps are on the front the September issue of the VAC Newsletter. If you are a member and have not received your copy please contact the club secretary; see Contacts for details.

    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. 

    This makes a nice change, a contribution from club member Richard Pringles. This beautiful study of Foxgloves at Frogmore is instantly recognisable to those who have visited this fishery during the Summer.
