Bonus Fish On The Fens

chris-v-old-neneAfter a year’s absence from the Fenland Drains, Chris Vandervleit bounced straight back to winning form last weekend.

His 10lb 1oz catch was enough to win his section in the East Midlands Winter League practice open on the Old Nene in Cambridgeshire.

Chris made the most of an end peg draw at Halfpenny Toll Bridge at Benwick to catch a bonus tench and a bream on chopped worm plus around 3lb of smaller fish.

“It made a nice change to get back on a natural venue with 66 anglers fishing,” the match ace commented.
