This was a special birthday present from Dave’s wife Janie. His longtime friend Danny Daniels had also come along for the day.

The wonderful Decoy lakes near Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue.

It was a very hot summer morning with a really warm moderate southerly wind. The fishery was really busy for midweek.I decided to go on Horseshoe Lake.

Method feeder was the chosen tactic. Hookbait was a 5mm banded pellet. It took about 3 casts and Dave hooked into his first fish. Danny also started to catch well. F1’s were feeding well also some tench and skimmers.

We left the bank at about 4.30pm. Dave had caught just over 50lbs of fish and Danny about 30lbs.
