Tufnel Mere Monday 24th May 2010
This was the very first Trip in 2010 for Trev on Tuffers although Dave had been practicing the week before when he had a nice Tench of 2-5lbs, Today the weather was scorching hot & the carp were topping all over the Mere ,, Trev arrived at about 2pm & on first cast he was into a very nice carp of about 10lbs, he was then joined by Dave who had some super carp & a surprise catch that shall remain a secret,,,, Trev also managed to catch a nice Bream. Due to Dave Swanning off on his holiday soon this will probably be the last Afternoon Club for a while, Dave will be gagging to land his first Twenty when he returns......
Broads Green Lake 6th May 2010
Today was the first session of the Afternoon Club for Trev & Dave, Trev arrived first at the lake at 1-45pm he had a nice Common Carp after about an hour of 12lb-1oz before he was joined by Sunny Dave... Dave struck into a nice carp that put up a fair struggle before it fell off, not deterred Dave cast out again & hooked another carp from the margins & again this fished waved goodbye before getting in the landing net,, again another fish was hooked & landed a nice Carp of 10lb-5oz, Trev had 3 more carp on a secret bait only known to Trev & Dave ... a nice start to the summer season & they both went home ready for the next session in a couple of weeks time........
Tufnel Mere 12th May 2009
After the terrific Piking they had had both Dave & Trev were trying to get into the Carping mindset & the thoughts of catching that elusive Twenty Pounder,, with the weather forecast of heavy rain at any time it was difficult to know when to arrange a session, they made a decision & met at the Mere at 3pm. After a few light hearted moments the swims was chosen & it was game on,, Trev was soon into a nice carp of about 10lb & both Dave & Trev caught 9 fish between them including a nice Tench for Trev of about 3lb,, best fish of this short session was an 11lb-12oz Common for Trev,, best baits were Boilies, Bread & Paste, as usual time went too quickly....
Broads Green 20th August 2008

Tufnel Mere 29th May 2007
This was a last minute decision to fish The 'Jimmy Jimmy Swim', due to the terrible wet weather that we are having at present we brought forward our visit by one day to try to avoid the rain, it proved a wise move & apart from the odd shower & puff of wind it was warm & at times hot, The fishing was slow to start with but then after changing tactics we started to bag up,, Trev got hooked into a heavy fish that broke him up but then steadily caught Carp into the evening he also caught a fish that seemed to have the head of a Tench & the body of a Bream & it was aptly named as a Brench, Dave had a bit of a wait but then started catching in style landing a fantastic looking Tench followed by Bream, Carp & more Bream,, baits varied from Halibut Pellet to Bread & Paste....A Hard Days Work again !
Tufnel Mere 16th May 2007
This was the first session this year at Tuffers and right on key at 3pm Dave arrived in the pouring rain, the first fish came after about 2 hours to Trev when he changed his bait from paste to bread on the Method feeder, Trev suddenly had a premonition that Dave was about to have a run & at that precise moment he did, and landed his only Carp of the session but followed it with a very nice Bream. Trev had another carp of about 8lb on Stinky French Garlic Flavored Luncheon Meat (a new Spam Product) at 7pm fish started to show on the top, so Trev surface fished Bread and had a few lovely carp off the top (biggest 11lbs-2oz), Trev & Dave packed up at 8pm still catching up to the end in the pouring rain, (None but the Brave or Mad for this Trip)
Seabrook's Reservoir 19th April 2007
Due to the hot sunshine Trev was tempted to go for a couple of hours & the result was some nice carp all caught on the top using banded bread, Karen did the honors with the camera including some action shots, with clear blue skies we could have been in Cyprus !....
Seabrook's Reservoir 16th April 2007
What a couple of weeks makes, The sun shone and the fish fed , Dave captured his second biggest Carp at 18lb 'Well Done Dave' Baits were Luncheon Meat, Halibut Pellet & Bread.
Seabrook's Reservoir 3rd April 2007
As the weather forecast was hot & sunny the first trip for the afternoon/evening club of 2007 was arranged & sure enough the temperature dropped when we arrived to fish & the sun disappeared,, after a wait of 2 hours Trev caught the first fish of the session a nice Common Carp of 10lb-4oz this was followed by a Dark Common for Dave of 8lb-8oz on the float lift method on maggots, Trev caught another almost Leather Carp of 11lb-4oz & 2 small roach, both carp were caught using Halibut pellet as recommended by Tim....
Tufnel Mere 4th September 2006
As the weather forecast was dry & warm and Dave was gagging to have his string pulled, after work Dave dashed to join Trev for a another go in the same swims they had fished on the last visit to the mere on 2nd August, Dave wasted no time and was into his first carp within minutes of his arrival, Dave continued to catch 6 more fish whilst Trev watched and waited for his first bite, not wishing to be humiliated he changed baits from boilies to paste & quickly caught 7 carp to level the score, Dave came back & took another 3 fish. The total haul of 18 fish was estimated to be in the region of 150lb in just a few hours Dave catching the best fish of the session a 13lb Common,, both anglers went home in the moonlight very happy & contented still dreaming of their first twenty. He Who-He-Who ect......
Another wet evening at Tufnel 2nd August 2006
Fishing uncharted area of the mere ( including a Trev Twighlight)
Tufnel Mere 25th July 2006
A late decision to fish this afternoon proved a good one, it was nice to see Dave bouncing along the High Road with not a Jimmy Jimmy in sight. The fishing continued to be in great form and a couple of firsts were recorded, Dave with the comments I have never caught on these halibut pellets only to strike into a nice 13lb Common and Trev catching his biggest carp of the day a lovely 11lb 8oz Common on a Spicy Chicken (Good Sh-t) Sandwich & Tim's Mini Pineapple boilies catching most other fish, Dave also had several more carp on Halibut pellets & a nice bonus Tench (see pic),,,,remember he who dares wins well Dave dared & landed a nice Carp on the top on bread in the Twighlight zone, well done Dave.
Broads Green Lake 28th June 2006
Very hard fishing but Dave Managed a 9lb common on Luncheon Meat and Trev was keeping out of the sun
18th May 2006
Remember He who Dares Wins!
The weather forecast was very heavy rain and Dave nearly cancelled the session, apart from one short shower it remained dry and Dave was rewarded with his first Tench for some time and a super Common of 14lb-12oz.
4th May 2006
The weather stayed fine and Trev was aching with laughter after a visit by Jimmy Jimmy, we caught a few nice fish but most of the photo's were blurred due to camera shake (see slip ups).
