What a muddy mess
If you are a VAC member you
will have good reason to be interested in the work recently undertaken at our
new freehold fishery, Bellows Mill. In case you have forgotten, the VAC
completed the purchase of this two-lake former trout fishery near Eaton Bray
back in June 2010. Click on the Archive button above to check out our June
Since then the club has made a
further major investment in re-working the two waters to ensure they are
suitable to provide good and safe sport for many years to come
Based on expert advice we have
reworked the lakes by draining, dredging and reforming such that Ford lake will
once again be a compelling trout venue and Mill lake will have around 20+
comfortable pegs suitable for mixed coarse fishing.
What wasn't expected, once the lakes
were drained, was just how 'soft' the lake beds were and the initial Plan A
rapidly became Plan Z as various solutions were incorporated to provide
'peninsula's for trout fishing and islands on the Mill lake.
Of course, it will be months before
the venue will re-open. Be sure you have signed up for and are receiving e-news
to keep up to date with developments
Riverside Christmas Match Postponed
Perhaps no surprise that
after two weeks of sub zero temps Riverside is totally frozen and, under
the ice, the water is as clear as tap water.
With no sign of a thaw by
Sunday 12th December the Match Committee have agreed to postpone the
popular Christmas match until early January. However, the Christmas draw
will continue as planned and results will be circulated by e-news soon

WE GOT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS?
Remember, that unless your email
address is registered on Club DB, our membership database, we can't keep you up
to date via e-news nor can we accept your application to join the VAC Forum. To
check and update your details see the Subscriptions page
Club DB, our
excellent member database, is now serving us well with members able to
log in and update their details at any time.
However, a small number of
members have not yet sent in or uploaded a passport style picture which
we MUST HAVE to print up your next membership card. We believe we have
now resolved some the technical difficulties but for those who cannot
upload a suitable picture please find time to either email your photo
(quoting ID number) or pop a picture in the post to the Registrar. More
details on the Subscriptions page.
