Haul of 2lb-plus crucians from Alderfen Fisheries

This cracking 2lb 9oz crucian was the biggest of four 2lb-plus fish caught by Lee Swords and his dad during a session at Alderfen Fisheries at Wroot.

The Sheffield-based chef took all the fish, as well as several smaller crucians, on a combination of floatfished pellets and small method feeder tactics.

He told Angling Times: “These fish might not be massive when compared to the beasts of Marsh Farm in Surrey, but they are very good fish for the frozen north!”
