Blunt's Mere 15th September 2010
Today Trev & Tim arranged a session at Blunt's before the cold weather sets in, it proved to live up to expectations & Tim had the time of his life Bagging up Big time with so many big carp to 13lb & some bonus Tench, It was obvious to Trev that Tim has perfected the method to dominate this Lake & he was justifiable rewarded. Trev had Five Carp to 12lb.....& a good time was had negotiating the overhanging Trees,,, Ha Ha Ha just watch the expert Trev !
The River Stour Sudbury
Friday 6th August 2010
After a previously cancelled trip Tim & Trev Finally got out on the river aboard Piker 1 for a bit of mixed Summer fishing, species targeted were Perch, Roach, Bream, & of course their favorite Pike,,, All were boated although the pike were small they made good sport on spinners, Tim & Trev had no less than 7 Pike on spinners & had several that shed the lures when hooked, Tim caught his first Perch on a spinner & a nice day was enjoyed,, the rain kept off all but a light shower,,, 5 of the Pike were caught trolling from the boat which was a new experience & method for Tim & Trev,,, May we take this opportunity to wish Dave a speedy recovery from his recent accident & Trev looks forward to their next outing soon,,,,,,

Cants Mere 23rd January 2008
Trev Decided to take a trip over Cant's to get the tight line feeling back after a couple of blanks Piking in recent weeks, he was not disapointed armed with one float rod & a loaf of bread he fished from 9-30am till 3-45pm & bagged up with too many carp to count, as he was fishing alone the few photo's published here were taken using his mobile phone Tripod & timer, this place is really the place to be when the fishing gets hard elsewhere....
