Felmersham today - by Steve Burfoot

Hi Stan,

Thought you would be interested to hear how Brian [Lakin] & I got on up to Felmersham today - we started  off on the top straight below the bridge but it was awful - I only had two small fish and Brian never had a bite, so we went down to the Island at about 12 o'clock. Brian fished the backwater and quickly caught 10lb of  roach, and I fished the main river below  the Island and had six chub, best two were 6lb 8oz and 5lb 8oz.( all on cheese paste).

We were not the only ones there. About four others fishing, most catching nice roach One chap claimed a 14lb barbel last week and a 16lb'er a few weeks before. Perhaps the monsters have come up from Radwell?
