 Early Scale Certification Available
Posted on 01/19/2015

VAC Weighmasters Ryan Noland and Larry Allen want to reduce the number of scales they have to certify at the February Membership Meeting.  They are willing to do special certifications for multiple scales early.

If you and a couple of fellow Anglers can gather your scales together and come up with a group of scales for early certification, then please contact Ryan.  Ryan will work with you to set up a convenient place and time for your early certifications.  

Please remember to be sure your scales are in working order and the barrels are oil free so the certification stickers will adhere.

 Tournament Results: VA/NC Striped Bass
Posted on 01/19/2015
Andrew Campbell won the 17 day-long December Striper Tournament with a 12-6 striper on 8 # fly as a points entry worth 206 points. Andrew spent four skunk-accompanied days in the lower bay looking for stripers.  Finally, he got word that the fish were further up in the bay and that is where he caught his winning entry.




 The Economic Benefits of Cleaning Up the Chesapeake
Posted on 10/10/2014
This first-ever analysis released by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) finds that the economic benefits provided by nature in the Chesapeake Bay watershed will total $130 billion annually when the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint is fully implemented.
 
The peer-reviewed report, produced by economist Spencer Phillips and CBF Senior Scientist Dr. Beth McGee, compares the value of those benefits in 2009, the year before the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint began being implemented, to the benefits that can be expected as a result of fully implementing the Blueprint.

 Pony Pasture Wade – Fun Fishing Outing (June 28)
Posted on 06/12/2014
Meet at the Pony Pasture parking lot for a morning of wade fishing. Light tackle fishing for sunfish and bass, or fly fishing, or cat fishing. Whatever your passion is. Closed toes shoes are best for wading (old tennis shoes are best). Don’t bring anything that can’t get wet. Pony Pasture offers pretty good fishing early in the morning, but as it gets into the late morning, people start to show up in droves. We’ll get in at 6:00 AM, get out at 11:00 AM and possibly grab a bite to eat
afterwards so bring a change of clothes.
 
Questions: Contact Mike Ostrander, (804) 938-2350 or Mike@DiscovertheJames.com
