This was a special 80th birthday present from Gareth, Carol, Howard and Claire. Sons Gareth and Howard had also come along for the day.

The river Trent near Nottingham was the chosen venue. It was a warm sunny morning with a light westerly wind. At last summer has arrived.

Groundbait feeder was the chosen method. The river was just dropping after recent rain but conditions were almost perfect. Second cast in Toms tip rattled and he was rewarded with a 4ozs dace. More dace followed plus a roach about 6ozs and also some perch. Howard started on stickfloat and was catching quite well. A switch to feeder in the last hour was much better and he had a run of quality dace. Gareth fished the feeder all day and enjoyed himself catching dace and perch.
