The point of breams

Sunday, 21 June 2020 at 06:50

Pointless There must be those who love them. I've never been able to see the point of breams. They flap a bit when they're hooked, they slime the line, they are duly returned. This one - a weighed 6lb - took a chocolate-flavoured Dumbell Wafter fished on a bayonet rig (and that's not a sentence I ever thought I'd commit to the English language). The fish was one of three, an evenly graduated lot of 4 - 5 - 6lb. which took baits intended for more meaningful inhabitants of the lake.

Tench on the Lift

Tuesday, 16 June 2020 at 15:15

June 16th tench June 16th - the traditional opening of the coarse season. For some reason one just has to fish for tench on this particular day of the angling year. Accordingly, obviously, unimaginatively therefore I fished for tench: raked the swim, watched for bubbles, meanwhile assembling a peacock quill float, 2 SSG, size 12 hook and two big brandlings presented on the Lift method. As things turned out I saw no tench bubbles and was hard put to avoid hordes of avid little rudd (and equally diminutive perch). Nevertheless, I did catch and release a tench - a fish of around 2lb. which inhaled the worms and gave a stubborn account of itself before coming to the meshes. To say I was delighted would be an understatement.
