Ideal conditions met Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club members at Durleigh Reservoir near Bridgwater.

Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club headed to the beautiful Durleigh Reservoir, south of Bridgwater for their latest competition and fished the Lodge Bank.

Broken cloud, warm temperatures and a light north west wind made ideal conditions to target the huge head of bream that reside in its depths.

Most anglers selected to feeder fish at distance using a method or open ended feeder with the usual mix of fishmeal ground bait in conjunction with caster, worm, pellet or mini boilie on the hook.

Club stalwart Kev Perry is a regular at the venue and soon had the fish lining up to take his offerings, ending up with a nice bag of bream for 76lb 8oz and first place.

Andy Hembrow is another regular at the reservoir and came second with 52lb 4oz. Committee member Rob Fogg’s recent practice sessions paid off gaining him third place with a level 28lb.
