Silver Fish Festival Larford Lakes Monday 18th – 21st November 2019
A disappointing turn out for this sliver only festival. For those that booked on but didn’t fish and for those that simply stayed away, a fantastic four days of prime sliver fishing was missed.
To win a section, 40 – 50lbs was needed.
On the main, long pole with caster or cage feeder tactics were the winning methods with loads of bream, skimmers and roach making up superb weights.
Winner of day 1 was Andy Power with 42-3-0 from peg 12.
Andy fished long pole with casters landing a mixed bag of roach, skimmers and bream.
