Above is a schedule of planned activities for the Virginia Anglers Club for 2023.  We have a lot of fun activities this year.  Everyone is encouraged to attend as many of these activities as possible.  It is a great way to get connected to the club, to connect with other members, and learn about our unique fishers.  Please notify Frank Hart to express interest in participation.  You may want to consider getting a room if you plan to attend either surf trip.  Be on the lookout for additional details as we get closer to each planned date.
