I had a trip over to Bughfield Match lake yesterday, with my mate Ian, to catch his kids some carp. What a brilliant day we, and especially the kids had.

We caught somehwhere between 40 and 50 carp upto 11lb, over 10 bream to around 4lb and a few tench. It really was excellent for them to be able to get use to getting runs, striking, playing and looking after fish under supervision.

Id just like to say well done and thanks to RMC and Ian for a brilliant water and day out. Keep up the good work.

Mind you I think I will be sticking to harder waters for my own fishing. I was in bed for 8.30pm last night - LOL

From what I'm told, the barbel shouldn't show for a few years, but when they do start getting caught, you know that the river Kennet is only up the path - only kidding Ian!
