BROADS RIVER ON FORM

RIVER BURE, ST BENETS ABBEY, NORFOLK

Angling Times (UK) - - MIDLANDS -

A RE­CENT open match here saw some ex­cel­lent weights, with the en­tire field record­ing dou­ble-fig­ure nets.

This slow mov­ing stretch has depths down to around 9ft in the cen­tre chan­nel.

The weights were largely made up of skim­mers av­er­ag­ing 2lb and most an­glers were catch­ing these fish­ing the ground­bait feeder with worm or mag­got. The river also con­tains a lot of roach. Big bags of them can be caught on sim­ple whip and mag­got tac­tics.

PRICES: £3 a day on the bank, £20 a year, Nor­wich DAA

CON­TACT: Nor­wich DAA, 01603 400973

POST­CODE: NR1 1R

Skim­mers are pro­lific on this stretch right now.
