Brett’s PB bream

Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

Bfol­lowed a good run of River Trent spec­i­mens with his fourth per­sonal best in three weeks, in the shape of this 15 lb 6 oz bream.

Tar­get­ing a North West still­wa­ter, where he had a bream of 14 lb 9 oz early in the sum­mer, Brett started his lat­est ses­sion for carp be­fore switch­ing tac­tics.

Manch­ester-based

Brett ex­plained: “After see­ing bream fizzing and rolling on Fri­day night and Sat­ur­day day­time, I made the de­ci­sion to tar­get them.

“I switched to a 10 mm yel­low pop-up, pre­sented over a tight bed of pel­lets and

10 mm boilies, with a 1 oz lead wrapped in match­ing paste.

“After hav­ing a take at 1.30am on Sun­day, I in­stantly knew that I was into one of the big bream. To say I was buzzing would be an un­der­state­ment.”

RETT LONGTHORNE

BEN FULKER came within 4 oz of his PB chub after mat­ting this 7 lb 1 oz spec­i­men from his lo­cal River Nene in Northamp­ton­shire. The 35-year-old pho­to­copier en­gi­neer from Northamp­ton used an 11 mm pel­let on a free-run­ning bomb rig. Ben said: “The next day I caught a 20 lb com­mon carp from the same spot. My chub PB is 7 lb 5 oz, a fish caught from the Great Ouse.”
