That's a big bream there mate..

On purpose,just like my carping kit,I'm minimal,but in this case...i have,on purpose just two rods,one given to me by another mate,a well known Cornish big fish angler..who passed on last year,a 13 ft korum precision float rod four piece,and John Wilson Avon quiver,my reels are Mitchell and have been fully rebuilt,and are over fifty yrs old,cant beat a Mitchell 3.0.0.....boomerang ticking..

And custom pins...one a true pin,the other bearing..i also collect handmade vintage floats,I have two 'naiaids'from 1890....replicas,with Trelawney,and St Piran,internals..

Like I said,when I'm sixty,carping stops....ive started giving my kit away in dribs n drabs...some youngsters in my village have done very well from me...👍

Nice post mate, few years ago I had a 9lb2oz bream and actually intending on going back next year to target them (something I would not have said before!)

Agree with the previous posts, love to keep myself motivated through the winter, whilst I'll still do a little carping, I am already getting excited thinking of watching the tap tap whack on the quivertip this winter.

I must say how much I enjoyed reading this...

This is what I do ,and something I'll be doing a lot more,proper fishing...this year i have had tremendous sport fishing for all species,sometimes certain types by design..

One particular session i did the 'ton'made up of several species,bream to six pounds,and two plus crucian carp,using my favourite method,prawn n pin...close in and personal..

Last week my mate,text me,saying how he's struggled,on this private manor we go to,in fact he blanks there a lot...i suggested float fishing,he laughed....my last session there,lots of Rudd,Tinca,and ten carp...lol,that didn't go down to well with my mate..

I'm glad carping is so popular,for obvious reasons,there is great sport right under there noses,and yet dismiss it....

Not many on here know this,but I was a ILEA,school match champion,my sounding boards,Kenny Collings and Charlie Taylor...all my kit from the KC angling shop in the seventies..I've not forgotten what I learnt..

When I hit sixty,carping will be a distant thought,and proper course angling will be paramount,if I'm lucky..!!

Thought i'd share, seems odd for a carp angler to specifically target bream knowing what a nuisance they can be on the carp rods But two reasons for it really, last year I inherited my Dad's old coarse fishing gear, he's lived in Ireland for a number of years and hasn't fished for years so gave me it last year when he was over for my wedding. So I had the gear I needed. Secondly, I can catch loads of the slimy things when carp fishing and no matter how big they are they just turn on their side and come straight in, PITA! What always baffled me though, is that when I talk to the guys fishing for them on my local pond, they don't seem to have much luck catching the bigger bream, in fact, if someone has half a dozen they call that a red letter day! So I thought i'd set out my stall to try and catch some, see if it's as difficult as people make out.

Over the last 3 weeks or so, i've gone down the pond with a 12" match rod, old closed face Daiwa 123M reel loaded with 2.5lb line, and a 4bb waggler. Fishing maggots & corn and feeding the same, plus hemp & pellets i've had some great 2-3 hour evening sessions. Best being a 14 plus hit of bream, many of which were over 4 or 5lb, and I have to say it's been really great sport on the light tackle. Best i've had must have been north of 7lb although I haven't weighed any. The thing I still don't like, is how slimy these fish are! Generally when caught on carp gear they are unhooked in the edge, but using smaller hooks (14) means they need bringing out and unhooking, and the mess they leave is something I don't miss!

Still, It's made a nice change from sitting behind static rods and something i've incorporated into my baiting up visits, hour or two with the waggler and chuck a load of boilie in when done for when I return for the carp

Anyone thinking of giving it a go should before summer finally goes, you'll maybe be quite surprised by how much a 4lb, 5lb or even bigger bream can pull the string on a match rod and 2lb hooklink! One of them I genuinely thought i'd hooked a carp, 20 minutes to get in FFS
