Good times Nick, remember them fondly. We could write a book on those two Boysaway trips alone. I also remember you forgot your passport and had to drive all the way home to collect it. I can't believe that was 16 years ago. The van trip on the first visit was a major experience. Me and Dean talking utter drivel about Gibbon Hairdressers and Olympic underwater goat formation swimming teams. We all caught carp and had a good laugh along the way. Its what it should all be about.
Thank you to the Carpforum, because without it, these trips would never of happened.
All the best mate, Paul.

Hi All

2008 for me

Met some absolute legends and characters on here, learnt a lot and I've hopefully given a lot back as well.
Miss certain members who've been sadly banned, mostly for their lost knowledge
I know the mods might delete this, but big shout out to Skear, probably the most argumentative tosser a man could come across, but boy did he know his ****!! True carper and one of the originals
Best
Jon

Oh yes, the infamous Boysaway trips.
The first one involved me and Mark Hadley driving a very rammed van which on the way back smelt so bad it made us retch when we got back in. On the night of the storm you and I stayed to fish while the rest tried to watch Liverpool somewhere. We both caught and then listened to the punching, the vomitting, a dog being showered and then a certain Welshman falling in the lake
I remember the Grassy you lost that jumped close in and catching my first 20. Also Deano and others building a bait island on the bottom lake which lead to his nice common.

Of course on the other hand myself and another Welshman ended up in a right state on the second trip. I seem to recall pulling him out of the lake before waking up very ill in my bivvy
I still have the scars on my back where I fell into the trees.
You and I both caught Cut Tail that trip, my first 30 and the lad I gave a lift from Hastings caught his only fish on the last day after lots of attempts. As we left after our breakfast roll we managed about a mile before he was violently ill.


Really enjoyed both those trips which were my first ones to France and learnt a lot from you Monkeyclimber

Joined Aug 2004, still lurk a bit to see what's going on. My memories are that I fished a battle carp match with Mark Hadley at cemex chertsey and also on a forum trip to Boysaway Carping in france with Mark Hadley, Dean Oram, Chunks & Brents. Good times.

Haha Keith, the Merrington social was legendary. We had northern socials for about 10 years and made some friends for life. We did manage a reunion social in October just before we went into another lockdown and it took me 4 days to recover.

I fished in the original carp forum carp match, fished a qualifier with slash and a few others at Thorpe lea and then made it to the final which was at Barston lake near Coventry. Think i won about 80 quid for coming 2nd.

Lost touch with the forums for a number of years.

Remember chatting with Boris and a few others back then

I never knew heíd had a slap prior to my finding him in the lake!

Some good socials there pal, I did the Willows and Jim Shelley ones too. Did anyone actually bother with bivvies or did we all just kip in that barn at the JS social? I was pulling straw out of my sleeping bag for months afterwards!

Joined in 2003 but forgot and then created this profile in 2004.

I was a Mod for a while and organised the infamous Farlows social where several memories stand out:
1) "Commoncarp" getting really drunk and starting aggro with one of the larger members who slapped him round the face.
2) CommonCarp then being pulled out of the freezing lake by Freedi and stood in the lukewarm shower for ages. Im sure Freedi saved his life.
3) Daz Conway falling asleep pissed so we dressed him up with all the cleaning lit including a mop. I still have a photo of Boo licking his face.
4) Playing poker with a big group and winning
5) I didn't bring any fishing gear as I knew id get no chance so me and my brother Tich bivvied up at the back of the lodge. Next morning I woke up and wondered why it was so bright, turned out to be snow. Then I heard Tich throw up. Turned out he's zipped up his sleeping bag and couldn't undo it quick enough so threw up in his sleeping bag cover.
6) Chris Cook and another Chris had their tackle stolen. We'd already left but the manager of Farlows was obnoxious about it all. The site was meant to be locked and patrolled by the bailiffs who instead spent the whole weekend on the piss.


I also went to the social/comp at Bridges, Staplehurst and the one at Willows. There was also another one at a place in Cambs where it all kicked off when someone suggested the Mods leave to have their own meeting. Staplehurst made me laugh as a certain then Mod who was full of mouth (left to start another website) got caught without a licence by the EA.
Then there was the social at Wolverhampton with Jim Shelley.

I also fished in a couple of the knockout match things though can't remember the name of it for the life of me.

I remember when we had the Babes thread which funnily enough eventually got removed


Happy times and I went twice to Boysaway in France with people from the forum as well.

It was Winter bay we were in, like you a massive walk from the car park! I remembered who I fished with, his name was Lee but I canít remember his username (heís probably posted in this thread )

I remember the Cromwell social. I had them feeding in the margins and got the only run on the morning of going home, but it went into the nature reserve behind and cut me off Carpmanconway spent ages trying to nab one after that as others were still there and Iíd packed up pissed off. I remember the bait too, Maple-8 that had turned and gone all white. It smelled awesome.

I canít remember the lads name I fished with at Horseshoe, cockney fella who worked on the meat markets. Good lad. We were sat there waiting for the draw, watching loads of Carp head and shoulder over the far side and nobody else seemed to notice We managed to get over there and had a few between us.

Yes now I think about it it was Chris and someone else that had their gear nicked while we were doing the raffle/socialising. Canít remember who had the tree come down on their rods but remember they were fuming about it (understandably) and wanted compo from Farlows/CarpForum. Went home with the hump and won the new rods in the raffle

Think it was Chris Cook that had gear nicked but my memory ain't great. Think the guy in the next swim was a bailiff and supposed to be keeping an eye on it.

most of us were drunk....

i remember the lad that fell in at farlows.... that was also the one where Chris cook had his gear nicked...

Also - Barston golf club social was a good un - certain members "borrowing " a golf cart... and a few pompey fans ending up in the lake

What a great idea to have a socials at lakes with club houses

what ever happened to Andy (was called "pop up" previously and was a mod back in the day)?

. . regret never making any of the socials - kids started to arrive in 2005.

Any chance of these being re-ignited once the zombie apocalypse is over . . .? Anything to escape them these days . . .

The socials were always a good laugh and were something I always looked forward to

That was the welsh guy I think. He didnít even hang around for the raffle.

The second Farlows social was the one where there was a load of kit nicked. Both were extremely messy if I donít remember correctly.

Done a couple of the Farlows ones. The one I remember most is the one where we had bad weather, I organised the raffle and before the raffle someone (I want to say Chris Cook for some reason?) had half a tree come down on top of their rods smashing them up. He won a new set of rods in the raffle

Another social I remember for the wrong reasons was the Cromwell social in 04/05. Didnít have a sat nav back then so wrote the directions down from the AA route planner. Wrote the wrong motorway down, if i remember rightly I wanted M1 then A1 but I wrote down M1 A11 and ended up in Norwich not Nottingham

Many good laughs Iíve had at Socials and still fish with people I met through this forum

Pete, Iím sure me and you had a Battlecarp match at farlows match lake many years ago
