Classic floatfishing tactics result in brace of 2lb rudd

A short evening session floatfishing on a small Norfolk stillwater saw Rich Wilby land no less than 40 fish, with this brace of 2lb rudd being the highlight.

The Airfield Lakes owner caught all of his fish from close to set of lily pads with a single grain of corn fished shallow on a size 16 hook which was tied directly to his 3lb mainline.

He said: “I spend most of my fishing time sat behind bite alarms, so it was really nice just to have a few hours floatfishing.”
