AN­GEL OF THE NORTH LAKES, CH­ESTER-LE-STREET, CO DURHAM

Bream nudg­ing 10lb in Bowes Lake are now start­ing to show along­side nets of carp. To catch one, clip up with a small, free-run­ning cage feeder in open wa­ter and cast reg­u­larly. Run ground­bait, small pel­lets, corn and chopped worm through the feeder and use a seg­ment of worm on the hook.
