Lee McManus 16lb 1oz Bream

Current Drennan Cup Champion Lee McManus has continued his run of form with big bream after managing nine doubles over a recent session, topped by this 16lb 1oz fish.
Targeting a midlands stillwater, the Leicester angler fished in brutal conditions, with 45mph gusts and heavy rain battering his swim. Lee targeted the back of a gravel bar 22 wraps out and had the fish on single caster hookbaits. Due to heavy tow kicked up by the rough conditions, Lee fed only hemp and casters, knowing they’d sink quickly to the bottom and not be dragged a long way off his spots.Well done Lee!
