Birkacre magic

After a couple of unsuccessful short sessions i decided to give it a 4 hour morning session on the float - something many dont do on this water.
Dad and i were kitted up with a 12ft rod, reel with 6lb mainline, 4lb hooklink and bread/corn for me / dad was on maggott/worm

Bites wasnt exactly one a cast but when the float went under it was usually a good fish.

I hit all fish on bread but missed a few bites on corn!!! probably because it wasnt hair rigged.

I ended up with 1 tench and 5 bream to over 4lb - dad have 1 roach and 5 bream to nearly 4lb.

A great session and i cant wait to get back.
