David had booked a day with me to improve his skills with the pole, we had already been out last month on a commercial venue, this time we were on the Twenty Foot Drain near March in Cambridgeshire fishing for bream and roach.

It was a warm summer morning with a light Westerly wind blowing down the Drain.

David started just short of the middle at about 11mts it was over 3mts deep cupping in 3 balls of Van Den Eynde Supercup laced with casters and pinkies , with double pinkie on the hook, several small roach and hybrids were caught on the drop, then David hooked and landed a good skimmer about 1lb , after topping up with 3 more balls of groundbait a big bream was hooked and lost at the net, then another about 4lbs was hooked and landed, several more small fish followed but no more bream.

We left the bank at about 3pm and I guess David had caught close to 12 lbs of silverfish.
