On a first brief look:
If I do not recall it completely wrong, the error is the return(pass) as 
the default in vcl_fetch.

"In this mode, the request is passed on to the backend, and the 
backend's response is passed on to the client, but is not entered into 
the cache. Subsequent requests submitted over the same client connection 
are handled normally." - so basically, you are bypassing the cache.

The correct should be return (deliver);
