GVAC is based in mid Suffolk and has waters in and around Needham Market and Stowmarket. The club was established in 1984 with our original members fishing Needham Lake and four sections of the River Gipping.

The club values its members’ opinions, the development of its fisheries and the development of angling and is intent that all shall be given the opportunity to enjoy our sport in a safe and friendly environment. Our very active Junior Academy sections host regular events for young anglers and, along with our intermediates, are given every encouragement and opportunity to compete on a national level. With the support of Bosmere Tackle in Needham Market, the Environment Agency and Mid Suffolk District Council, young members and non-members alike can enjoy the coaching afforded by the club’s volunteers. The Suffolk Disabled Anglers' Forum (SDAF) is affiliated to ourselves and benefit from the use of GVAC venues. We are actively involved with the running of the Suffolk County Amalgamated Angling Association (SCAAA), members of Institute of Fisheries Management (IFM) and are supported by the Angling Trust in angling development projects.
