The Main Event
The VAC, despite its size, still
works hard to promote a healthy 'club culture'. Times have
changed and anglers expectations of fishing clubs are different from
years gone by when we would hold, for example, dinner & dance
events. But we are more than just an 'association' offering quality
fishing at 23 locations.
Events team, which evolved from our previous Specialist Section,
have established a great number of attractions for 2016. The team,
which includes representatives from all the different types of
angling supported by the VAC, is close to finalising dates for :
This is not the full list by any means with more activities planned
around carp fishing (including coaching), trout away-days and
intro-to-match fishing events.

Hope these pictures inspire you to keep an eye out for forthcoming
events, details on the Events page and regularly cascaded via our
eNews and our members-only forum. Members who may be keen to get
more envolved in the organisation of events are encouraged to
contact Events Chairman
Mike Ballard and
via Facebook at 'Verulam Angling Events' and on
Allan Bayman for winning this seasons VAC Championship.
With one fixture still complete at the time of writing, Allan's
stonking win at Lakeside Farm at the start of January (pictured)
ensured that the coveted trophy was his.
The VAC match section remains very popular with the focus on
fun, hence our optional pools are just £6. Why not look to join
us next season? You will be made very welcome and there will be
plenty of help and advice available if needed. Check out the VAC
