Silver bream at 2lb 8oz is a season's best catch

This 2lb 8oz silver bream was caught by Lee Amass during a session at Mill Farm in West Sussex.

The fish is the largest of the species that the local rod has caught this season and it fell to an 8mm pellet hair-rigged to a size 16 Preston PR-C1 hook and a short 6lb Ultima Virage fluorocarbon hooklink.

He said: “It’s been hard going this year with a late start to the season and work commitments. The big girls don’t seem to want to play ball either this year, so I was very happy with this one.”
