    Hiya guys..
    Im startin to think about the catfish trip for 2007 already ! haha.. as far as I was aware, the general concencus with the guys that came last time was that 3 ngihts would be better than 2, and it was held at the same place due to its adaptability and helpfulness of the bailiffs..

    Now the time of year I was thinking of was going to be June / July, so as try to garuntee some better weather than what we had last time..

    The location, for those of you who dont know, is Beaver Fisheries in East Grinstead, near Gatwick airport..

    As of right now, Im just trying to get a rough idea of numbers.. I am assuming that everyone that came last time is up for it again ? although Ive not heard anything from christian on the forum for a while now.. you out there mate ? there was 7 of us last time, although budgie would have made it 8 if he hadnt broken down.. If were only going to get 8 people again, we can stay on tuscany (the lake we were on) and hire it for the time were there. If there is any more than 8, were going to need to go over onto snipe, but were going to need atleast 13 people to hire that exclusively.. if, however, we can get 20 names down, we would be allowed to hire both lakes..

    I appreciate that 3 nights might be a bit long for some of you, so I had a think about it and came up with the plan that if a good number of us want to come along for 2 nights, we can hire the lake(s) for day 1 and day 2, then if some of us want to stay for the third day, we can, but those who dont want to, can go.. however, to make things easy, I would say that coming for day 1 and 2 is the way forward, rather than 2 and 3.. unless it is unavoidable.

    Ok, so there you go.. this will be a first come first serve basis, so if youre genuinely interested, put your name down and we can see how it goes.. also if you know anyone outside of the website that would be interested, give me their names too and Ill put them on the list too.. 20 people will be the target, but we'll have to see whats what.

    There is a chance it will be a midweek affair like it was last time.. but if most people can only do weekends and theres no way of coming midweek, then we might be able to switch it around..

    theres the website for the complex, as you can see theres loads of other lakes to keep us occupied during the daylight hours, as the cat action will mostly be at night probably.. we might be able to get some kind of a 3 day match going where by the biggest weight caught over 3 days wins a bottle of drink or something, if people are interested in a bit of fun rivalry that is..

    so there you go.. the last one was a great crack with a 53lb'er being caught by Mark Hewitt... if anyones up for it, gimmi your name..

    all the best
    Matt

    haha Nick, will do mate.. Mr shimano's name was first on the list.. I thought it best to get a profession envolved, and someone that knows every fish intimately, probably a little too intimately for some of our tastes, but whatever floats his boat I guess..

    I'll go for two at the moment Matty if thats ok. Although could I change in the future?

    Although have to say, depending on when it is in June (if it is June) I may not be able to come due to final exams.
