Yep, 15 quid per year and a mate who had work experience in an office, photocopied a permit and gave copies to our little gang.

Very ironic lol
My club had given up there stretch of the thames at datchet , because of another greedy rise £7,000 , they even hired an independent to see what the lease was worth , the figure was much less than that , but the crown won't play , shame as the club had the rights for nearly 80 years .

It was £65 per annum 3 years ago, the last time I fished it. HOWEVER you were very restricted in the fishing, you could only fish one bank and could only fish during the day. I think only a handful of people joined.

Isn't it ironic that increasing the cost to £1,000 per annum was thought of as s good idea when no one joined at £65 per annum!

Sounds a fascinating place to fish. Modern carp fishing is certainly becoming a rich mans sport. £1000 syndicate fees! I wonder what it will go up to in the future!

I fished Virginia water since I was a kid , when i got serious about the carp, I went to vw livery there is a book all about the history of the lake , and the is a picture of the receipt from Surrey trout farm in 1952 for a delivery of carp for the lake..

This has just popped up on YouTube -

Not my sort of video but does summarise the lake quite well, very beautiful but doesn't give up the carp easily.

Also looks like a lot of anglers at the start so maybe this was an invitation only weekend or something, anyone on the forum fish it? I wonder if anything got caught?

Yeah- i'd of strongly dislike it! but there was a bit of night poaching going on.. heard many stories now haha.

Alot of fish have been caught on that bank now. I personally had one of the 30lb mirrors from the swims just past the ruins when on a social!

Imagine how frustrating it was when you could only day fish it...Ö..and not fish the vast majority of it anyway.

Yeah, a few guys are slowly mapping it out.

Its bizarre, All the 'big fish' get seen up till June, then they just disappear?! don't get seen sun bathing, in the edge or anywhere. The big common has been sighted a few times since last year they don't want to put an estimate on it but it would dwarf a 35lb..

Yea, might well be rumours. That's part of the beauty of VW though, it's so big and virtually unfished until last year that it could well hold a number of uncaught monsters. And by that I mean fish that have grown to big weight naturally, not fed by anglers' bait.

Rumours, have been told it's not true. But there is 'known' to be a couple of large mirrors!
