This was a special 40th wedding anniversary present from Alan’s wife Jackie, who loves to fish and had also come along for the day.

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

It was a warm morning with a moderate westerly wind. Cedar lake has been producing some good weights of barbel so I decided we would fish there.

Pole at 6mts was the chosen method, loose feeding with 4mm Van Den Eynde hard feed carp pellets and cupping in 6mm pellets with a small pot on the pole every ship out. Hookbait was a 4mm banded pellet.

Alan was catching after about 5 minutes of feeding. Jackie also started to catch well. It was nonstop action as barbel, carp and F1’s were banked. After 2 hours Alan had reached his net limit and was returning fish as he caught them.

We left at about 4pm. I guess Alan had caught close to 150lbs and Jackie about 100lbs.
