Anglers continue to enjoy the start of the river season with some good catches reported.

Simon Irvine tried his luck on the river Trent for an evening session and, despite the conditions been poor with low water levels and gin clear, he winkled out two Barbel, the best a respectable 9lb 14oz.

Gee Brown fancied something different and headed off on a guided trip off the North Norfolk coast in search of Tope.

He wasn’t disappointed, landing four Tope to over 40lb and said he couldn’t recommend ‘Off the Hook Charters’ enough. Well worth a look if you fancy a day’s sea fishing on a boat.

Piotr continues to do well on the Carp front, visiting his local club water for evening sessions and landing several lovely doubles to around 20lb. All caught on the Stickybaits Krill Active.
