River's on fire
Every season we are fortunate to learn of some amazing
catches by our members from VAC waters and beyond. Whether these catches were
the result of many hours of intense pursuit or came by stroke of luck, it's
always a pleasure to share another angler's joy. For many, even better when
these catches are from natural rivers. So here are three such reports; Enjoy!
|At the start of the season, member Steve
Current had a red letter day on one of our river venues landing
92 - yes, ninety two - chub, most over 3lb to a best of 5lb plus three
barbel, two over 8lb. That's certainly a great stick-float day. His
catch even warranted a half-page report in the Angling Times. Click on
Steve to read what they said.
But for quality rather than quantity it's hard to beat
Andrew Poole's recent catch of three barbel for over 45lb.
Click on the pic of the 16.07 beauty below to read Andrew's great report on how
he came to bank three whacker whisker's.
Our third river success to report is a magnificent 9.07 bream
for Aaron Bosworth. Now we all know that the carp lads catch
big bream accidently but Aaron's fish came from Felmersham, our wonderful Great
Ouse water above Bedford. See pic right.

This is Andrew Poole's 15.05 barbel. Many of us never get to see
a fish of this size let alone catch one.
This is the 'tiddler' of Andrew's trio at 'just' 14.10.
Not all river fish this month. This 3.08 crucian or possibly crucian hybrid was
landed from Riverside by Tony Bullen.
As mentioned, this is Aaron Bosworth with his 9.07 Ouse bream. Does anyone heard
of a bigger bream from any of our river venues?
