  1. Very enjoyable weekend and was great to meet you all, some for the first time. Thanks to Andy for arranging the social and sorting the food out, Miles for allowing it and the use of facilities, Hel (Andy's wife) for making the Curry, Karl for doing the BBQ. I left on Sunday morning and believe only 2 fish were caught, well done Phil and Dayvid. Anyway, great social and looking forward to the next one.
  2. Mick I am sorry to hear of your loss and would like to offer you and your family my condolences. The last social I attended was Sandhurst, some years ago, and really enjoyed it, I'm sure this one will be no different and looking forward to it. This morning on erecting my bivvy so I could repair a broken tension strap and noticed the top seam is coming apart and by the time it was erected the seam completely split, so it looks like a new bivvy is in order for the future, but for now I'll have to go back to using my old brolly and over wrap, hopefully it'll do. Apart from that all is ready. See you all on Friday.
  3. Andy, thanks for putting me on the list, even though you got a number wrong As for the curry I'm easy, Helen's cooking it so will be spot on. How do you want paying, PayPal ?
  4. Thanks for the welcome guys. As Andy says, I am retired now.I closed my garage last July, just couldn't afford to continue, work went a bit thin and I spent a year paying overheads and not earning enough to keep my head above water, ended up spending most of our savings as well. So I decided to throw the towel in, close the business and retire.I have a wonderful wife and family who helped and supported me right to the end. I'm not happy about waking up in the morning and not going to work, worked all my life and just can't get used to the way things are at the moment, but, importantly,my relationship with Rose has certainly improved now I don't have the stress and worry about where the next penny is coming from. Late last year I had a nice PPI payment which meant I could clear all my debts, so now we can manage on our 2 state pensions plus my pension credits. Over the last few years my fishing basically had to take a back seat because all my time,effort and money was centered on the business. Last year I did 5 sessions at Churn Pool with a few very exceptional guys and who I consider good mates, Andy,Ian,Alan,Nige and Guy. I have to say that if it wasn't for these guys I would be a perfectly normal, alcohol free guy Seriously though, you guys made my year and it was a pure pleasure fishing with you, RESPECT. I'm sure there will be more sessions to come and I look forward to it. Anyway, once again, thanks for the welcome and I'll try and come on here more often.
  5. Ok,I'm not new on here nor am I new to Carp fishing, but I haven't been on for some time now, in fact a long time, so I've decided to come back. Used to be Mach3 but now have changed to Malc1950. Anyway just saying hello.
  6. Just like to say what a great weekend I had with fantastic company, really enjoyed it. Pleased that Nige and Guy caught, especially Guy after his tumble, I didn't laugh, honest....lol. Unlucky Andy for loosing 2 fish, it happens. Me, well I blanked but did have 3 Bream, these things happen....lol. Look forward to the next time lads.
  7. Berkley Big Game for me, used it for years and never let me down.
  8. It's not the first and won't be the last time you see this sort of thing. With ALL the help and information there is at hand you would think Anglers would have some sort of education and knowledge of how to fish safely. Unfortunately there are those who aint interested in learning and aint got a clue, and never will have, about what they are doing, this can only be bad for the fish and Angling as a whole.
  9. It's amazing how bait boat threads always seem to get silly. Really glad I do my own thing in my own way, with or without a bait boat....lol.
  10. What's a bus??? Lol Apparently something to do with Carp
  11. Needless to say I don't see a buss round here
  12. Hi mate, just Google South Cerney Angling Club and you will get most of the info on their site.
  13. When I decided I was able to attend the social I had arranged for my Son to cover for me and keep my garage open and do the work booked in.He has just phoned to say he can't help me,not prepared to go in to the reasons, so it means I can't turn up today or tomorrow morning. However, if I can do and finish the work I might be able to turn up Fri late afternoon.I am gutted, was hoping to get there late afternoon today.Everything is in the car ready, gear, food,bait, full tank of fuel. If I can't get there hope you all have a great time. Neil, pm me your paypal addy and I'll sort you out.
  14. Well done Nick, nice fish.
