I'm having a bit of a fishing bonanza this weekend while the wife and mother in law have taken the kids to her caravan. :)
I spent the late afternoon into evening fishing the lovely pool on a local river again. This time the aim was to fish caster in the feeder and see what turned up. I'd really hoped to get some chub but that was not to be, in the end it turned out even better really.
First came another procession of Perch like this one...
These persisted for an hour until I started to get some silver action, first a Bleak then a chublet, until finally about an hour before dark I hit something that fought back a little. When it surfaced I thought it was a nice Roach until I saw the anal fin, I knew straight away what it might be.
Sure enough when I got home I checked it against the pictures on Jeff's site Idler's Quest to verify what I had suspected.
The large eye and long pale anal fin were all clues leading to......
....my first Silver Bream ( that I'm aware of )
