With the river up and heavily coloured, all the fish were caught on the feeder with hair-rigged pellet.

Substantial tackle was needed on this powerful river, so the Drennan Team England ace tackled up with 10lb Specimen Plus main line to a 0.23mm Double Strength hooklength and a size 12 Super Specialist eyed hook.

Steve will now be hoping for more of the same in this weekend’s prestigious Riverfest Final, where the winner will walk away with a cool £10,000.
