Operation Bream

A switch to bream fishing proves successful for predator ace Neville Fickling as he ends his search for a double figure specimen…

"Its not easy to find something to keep the interest going these days, but I had a think and realised that I’ve never had a double figure bream. Ian Swannack who works for me has had hundreds of them and I mean hundreds! So I thought I’d have a go as I was a member of a water which holds  fish to 15lb".

"First trip and I get a 10-10 and a 12! Easy peasy this! Unfortunately there then followed a blank period before I finally got one more. At a shade over 11lb that brought “Operation bream” to an end. Until next season!"
