This was a special Christmas present arranged by George’s wife Gemma. The beautiful Pisces Country Park near Welney in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue.

Where is our summer? I have not seen any signs of it after returning from Ireland last week. Again it was a cool overcast morning, but water temperatures are quite high so the fish would be feeding well.

Pole was the chosen method and bream were the target fish. The small rudd can be a nuisance so cupping in was the best option. After cupping in 3 balls of groundbait packed with pellets and red maggots, with double maggot on the hook, George hooked into a good rudd immediately. More rudd followed and then a big bream. It was non-stop action as fish after fish came to the net. There were so many fish that it was necessary to top up the feed every 30 minutes.

We left the bank at about 4.30 pm George having had a brilliant day catching over 50lbs of roach, rudd and bream.
