Another Open Day

Earlier this year we held another great open day at our Riverside Road fishery and, despite the rain, we had nearly 300 visitors with a good number joining on the day. We are now planning for similar success at our freehold fishery at Bellows Mill at Eaton Bray, just north of Whipsnade Zoo.

This invite is to both members and non-members so feel free to bring family and friends. Come and see how the VAC have transformed the two lakes on this former trout fishery into a pair of wonderful lakes, offering a choice of both coarse and trout fishing in a safe and comfortable setting, adjacent to the River Ouzel.

Our very own Keith Speer
On the Box !

What next for our angling superstar Keith? His achievements have gained him 30 more minutes of fame on Sky TV's Tight Lines where he and host Keith Arthur enjoy a cosy chat in the bothy after a fruitful day bagging barbel at Marford...on the stick float of course. To view the video, click on Keith's smiling face.

This massive 41.09 common is one of the largest carp you can target with your VAC ticket. Banked by Richard Fosker from a consortium water

A smaller carp than above but no less of an achievement for young Alby Brazier This 11lber from Riverside is his new PB. He and his dad have only just joined the VAC and Alby has had several other 8lb carp as well

Match committee member Allan Bayman is no stranger to big fish on the pole with carp to nearly 30lb. This meaty barbel from Leasey Bridge must have been easy then!!
