Don't Stay In
Christmas and New Year are now well behind
us and hopefully not too much in the way of snow, ice and floods will spoil the
end of the traditional season.
Judging by the few anglers on our venues recently, the
challenging conditions are putting people off. But if you spend a little time
locating where the fish might be shoaling up and put in some short sessions you
will, hopefully, enjoy some success.
That's certainly the approach taken by new member John
Glanville who has had a great first year with the VAC and has kicked off 2013 in
style with a selection of fish including a 5lb tench from the School Pit at
Moor Mill (on a frosty morning), Several carp and bream on mini boilies from
Riverside and numerous big barbel from Marford, to a venue best of 12.04
