BIG UN'S EVERYWHERE
reports have been received of double figure barbel from
our Ouse venues...but where's the pictures guys !! Best reported
is a 13lb beauty from Felmersham with Radwell doing a 12lb'er
and some chub over 6lb from the new platforms
Also good to see are reports of baby barbel at Felmersham and on
the Lea at Marford where barbel to 8lb are now being reported
plus 'allegedly' a 6lb chub..hmmm. Best carp is now swinging the
scales down to 16-04 and there's plenty of big fish showing down
on the Long Walk.
Turnford doesn't often get a mention. Not surprising it's being
kept a secret when our members are banking carp to 36lb from the
Railway Pit and catfish to 23lb from Marsh Pit. Talking of
catfish, what was it I wonder that a young lad played for two
hours on a 2lb TC carp rod and 8lb line at Riverside recently,
only to have the line broken on a hidden snag??
Remember to keep the reports - and pictures coming.

The annual Officers match was held this year
at Riverside and top place went to Neil
Anderson with 43lb, a new venue match
record. Pole fishing worm and caster on peg
19 his first two carp went 12lb & 13lb ! A
week later down at Smallford, life member
Ash Adams went all out for small fish and
topped the match with 15lb of rudd.
Stan Kiddle (your webmaster) took 2nd place
in both the above but finally came good on
the GUC near Leighton Buzzard on Sunday 3rd
Oct with just over 20lb including a nice
double figure carp.
All the results are here
The VAC has had to concede defeat for now on
the car park pool and all fish have been
removed from the remaining few inches of
water; tench and crucians have gone into
Tony's Lake with the last of the carp plus
bream and large numbers of small fish into
It's too early to say what action will be
taken but a number of plans are being drawn
up to make the lake viable again.
