Mill Farm Fishery is famous for its population of silver bream (Bilcca bjoerkna) and where the British record has been captured a number of times. An easy way to distinguish the silver bream from the more common bronze bream is the large black eye, the silver scales and the lack of mucus on their bodies.
Craig and Margo had their carp gear with them and I'd brought the match set-up so of course there was talk of a mini competition remembering that those boys have two rods out at a time and we only fish a single line (rod or pole) at a time, it would be an interesting day out.
Not so much of a draw but three swims next to each other, so pegs 25, 26 and 27. Luckily we had the winds off our backs, plus some open water and margins to target.
I opted to set-up the pole and a fee…
