I'm wondering if @smufter could arrange something on his syndi , looks a lovely intimate little venue . They could be looking to raise funds after last year's problems.  Could do a 48 hr,  chance to meet some new faces & maybe put our heads together to organise something bigger next year ? I could of had us all on my water for free if it wasn't for the otters !

I would want you to catch some fish after your travels mate.

I'll struggle to make it this year due to the baby lads.

To be honest, I might struggle as well with my holiday coming up and a week in France booked for July.

Would it not be a better idea to try to arrange something for 2020???

I think you'd have a better chance of booking up something decent for next year, most of the "better" venues are likely to be fully booked this year.

I'm all up for a social, but if I'm travelling a decent way I'd much rather have the opportunity, (albeit small), to catch a decent lump, than fish a lake full of mid doubles.

😉

Young family means I have to book a trip these days, so any excuse as far as I'm concerned

Straying off topic but for a good reason.. how is little one? Does the house have that wonderful hint of poo and formula milk in the air? Hoping all is well and you’re getting some sleep. Just keep in the back of your mind..this is the easy bit!😂

I'll second that , baby phase seems hard and exhausting,but I am on day 2 of a 2 week daddy day care presently mine are 3+5 I shall mainly be drinking gin in the evening to unwind, already been throwing things around,having major tantrums about spoons and one was sent to her room for throwing a chair, and it's still only 8:20 

I did take them to the lake yesterday to throw a bit of bait in, they seemed to enjoy it finding the only puddle and soaking themselves, so that was good ducks will find a lot of bait in the margins though  but hopefully the carp will find some too :)

Depending on dates and location, I'd definitely be up for a social.

Broadlands sounds like a nice idea to me. I've only ever fished it once for a few hours. It's a very nice complex.

I don't want to put a downer on the idea because I like the location, but they had a KHV outbreak late last year. I don't know if that would put anyone off.

The do a very nice breakfast apparently though.

There's plenty of space depending on how many of us turn up.

How long are we looking at for the session?

I think broadbands looks good for a social bit of a drive for me but that's ok looks a nice place
