RECORD silver bream venue Mill Farm in West Sussex was the venue for this fine 2 lb 9 oz silver bream for Phil Morton. It was one of a haul of nine fish over the magic 2 lb mark, with six going over 2 lb 7 oz.

The firefighter from Chessington, Surrey is a former British record holder for the species, and he has been revealing sucess secrets in full in Angler’s Mail magazine lately.

On his latest session, Phil also landed 19 carp to 24 lb. Hookbait was a Bait-Tech 5 mm Jellet on a very short hair tight to a size 14 Drennan Super Specialist hook, fed with a combination of 4 mm Bait-Tech Sticky Method and Special G pellets.
