This was a special 60th birthday present from Tommy’s family, Yvonne, Kerry, Stephen, Beth, and George. Daughter Kerry had also come along for the day and was taking most of the pictures with my camera.

Gunwade lake at Ferry Meadows near Peterborough in Cambridgeshire was the chosen venue.

It was a warm morning with a moderate westerly wind, perfect conditions for fishing.

Feeder was the chosen method, clipping up at about 35 mts and accurate casting in the same spot soon had the hybrids feeding. Double red maggot was the best hookbait. It was still not easy to hit all the bites as a lot of small fish were in the swim.

We stayed until about 5pm. The fish were still feeding. Tommy had had a brilliant day and had never stopped smiling.
