Personal best bream falls in haul of doubles

Persistence certainly paid off for Leicester’s Trevor Pole who, in the space of just five hours, landed a 15lb 11oz personal best bream from a local stillwater along with other fish of 12lb 14oz, 12lb 2oz and 11lb 9oz.

Targeting a long range feature at 130 yards range, he put his faith in three imitation casters with he mounted on helicopter rigs.

He said: “The venue only contains a very small head of big bream so to catch a pb along with a bag of other double figure fish is a real achievement as months can pass on this place without a bream even being seen, let alone caught.”
