Youngster's 30lb bag of roach and bream

Junior angler Tyler Thomas made the most of a day on the in-form Bough Beech Reservoir by netting a 30lb bag of roach and bream in a session.

The 11-year-old made the journey to the Kent fishery with his dad and venue bailiff Andy and managed to land a series of small silverfish during daylight on waggler and corn tactics.

Rather than pack up once darkness arrived, he placed a starlight on his float to allow him to see the tip and the action then peaked, with roach up to 1lb 8oz and bream over 4lb moved in over his bed of groundbait and pellets.
