Richard Eaton Masterclass Day River Yare

This was a special 50th birthday present from Richard’s wife Adie and daughters Lizzie and Mollie.

The Langley Pump stretch of the tidal River Yare in Norfolk was the chosen venue.

It was a warm morning with a moderate westerly wind, which luckily was off our backs.

The river was almost on the bottom of the ebb tide when we started. Casting a feeder to the middle of the river soon produced some skimmers and roach. Then the tide turned and the river started to flow really hard as the tide started to flood. Casting the feeder on a shorter line produced some more roach. A switch to float close in in the last 2 hours and the swim came to life with roach, perch and dace coming every run through.

We left the bank just before 5pm Richard having had a great day catching close to 15lbs of silver fish.
