Joe Royffe with the biggest of 14 double-figure bream landed from a Lea valley pit

by Angling Times |

JOE Royffe’s decision to prebait heavily before his latest trip paid off with the capture of 18 slabs to a best of 15lb 14oz.

Prior to his two-night stay on a 90-acre Lea Valley pit, the Hertfordshire rod primed his swim with 8kg of pellets and groundbait, and then fished maggot feeder heli-rigs over the top during his session.

“In just under 48 hours I caught 18 bream, of which 14 were into double-figures,” he tells Angling Times.

“It was an absolutely amazing session that has left me truly overwhelmed.”
