With the difficulties faced by rivers from predators,
poachers and abstraction it's great to know that our waters can still produce
the goods. We have many members who have kept the faith although few actually
share their results
One exception is Andrew Poole who has put in the time on our Ouse waters and,
after a slow start, he has come up trumps with this wonderful 15.09 barbel plus
smaller samples to 11.10.
So dust off those rods and head north of Bedford. And not
just for barbel, Andrew has been amongst the perch (see right). And, don't tell
everyone, we know that perch over 4lb have been landed recently but, exactly
where, we're not telling.

BELLOWS MILL UPDATE
The VAC's freehold fishery at
Bellows Mill near Eaton Bray continues to see steady
improvement and development.
Trout fishing commenced on 1st September and
members of the VAC's trout section are enjoying great sport in Ford Lake. And
the coarse fishing on Mill Lake is continuing to throw up great fish with big
perch, tench, roach etc. plus grass carp to 28lb!!
If you've not yet visited this beautiful fishery then see it now in it's Autumn
glory before winter arrives - enjoy the view and the fish become a bonus.
||The VAC's last
two Championship matches have enjoyed great weather, full turn-outs and,
most important - obliging fish. In fact, club match records have tumbled
on both matches with, first, a 410lb winning weight to Nick Darke at
Entire Farm in Essex (left) which was then beaten by a weight of 422lb
to Josh Blavins from Alders Farm near Milton Keynes.
That last match produced nearly 4,000lb of carp
with an average of 131lb per angler. For all the details on VAC matches,
past, present and future click on the Verulam Match button.
