This was a special day arranged by Steve’s wife Marie, for her husband and father in law. They enjoy fishing together whenever they get a chance. Ferry Meadows near Peterborough in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue.

It was a cool summer morning with a moderate north westerly wind making it feel even colder.

Both anglers love to fish the feeder and the idea was to target some of the lakes specimen bream.

Casting to about 45 mts with a 35 gram medium Browning Window feeder filled with chopped worms and maggots with double red maggot on a 14 hook, it took a few casts before George hooked into his first fish a hybrid about 10 ounces, and then one of the lakes big bream. Steve had a slower start but then was soon catching some quality hybrids plus 2 big bream. As the day went on more hybrids moved into the swim. George also caught a big skimmer about 2lbs.

I left them at about 4pm. They were having such a great time they decided to fish on. Steve emailed me to say they kept catching hybrids until they finished the session at about 6pm.
