Silver bream and a river best at 13oz. This species is uncommon in catches made on this river unless a shoal is located. Not exactly rare but very tricky to find. I discovered a shoal at the end of the lower weir run off in turbulent water whilst roach fishing. Amongst them were even rarer silver bream x bronze bream hybrids. I found a shoal (and perhaps the same one) in summertime, and in exactly the same place.
A silver bream and a silver bream x bronze bream hybrid. Not easy to tell them apart but the larger fish just has too many scales to be be true. There's hardly a difference otherwise.

|My best bream from the venue at 4lb 8oz. Unlike elsewhere on the river they'll feed well here all day long and through the night. This was the first session I ever put in for bream at Lucys Mill but it would not be my last.
