Hi all, anyone fished the Bure at Horning for
Bream this summer?
Not been to the Broads for a few years
unfortunatly, but will be back at last in
August 2012, and thinking bout it already!
Are the Bream still around on the main river
after dark? Plenty of groundbait, sweetcorn
or worm 3/4 of the way across, has anything
changed? Hope not.
Appreciate any news of how you've done if
you have fished the Bure this summer.
Thanks, Bish.

Yes Bish the Bream are still there to be caught after
dark using the same methods,there are more Roach than
ever and the Perch have both increased in size and number  
with fish over 2lb not unusual if the right methods are
employed.

Hi there, thanks for the info.
I remember the roach i caught were never of
any great size but used to go mad at dusk for
the worm and corn hookbaits, but once
darkness arrived the bites would stop for an
hour or two, then suddenly the bream arrived
- on most nights! Good to hear of big perch on
the broads again to. Its gonna be a long year
of waiting!
Thanks again, Bish.

Hi Bish,
I am there at the start of next month and I am planning on fishing every
day and evening.  We are in the centre of horning in a cottage on the river
next door to the New Inn and I will be fishing straight out from the back
garden.
I have just purchased a new quiver tip rod and will be using open and
feeder with corn, worm and ground bait.
Any advice on what length hook link to use will be much appreciated.  
Cheers
Tich

Hi Tich,
Pretty certain the cottage you are in next
month is the one i got booked for next
summer! You could be a valuble source of
info!
Ive not fished the Bure for bout 5 years, so
any info i give may be a bit old hat, hopefully
a Bure expert will pick up this thread.
I always fished the feeder on a 'loop' method,
easy 2 set up and tangle free. Id have bout 3
feet of hook length. You can change that to
suit how the fish are feeding, but to do that
with this rig you have to have hooks to attach
that are on different lengths of line. Its the
one disadvantage but to be honest i fish it at
bout 3 feet and rarely change it. You're much
more likely to have to change the size of
feeder. Make sure you attach the feeder with
a little swivel and it can be changed in
seconds. If you are not familiar with the
'loop' method type it in on the web and you
will get a diagram on how to do it. I find it
dead easy and dead effective on rivers and it
always worked a treat on the Bure for me.
Regards, Bish.

I think you will have to vary the hook length depending
on the conditions. I expect by the time you come down
here the river will be clearing a bit, depending on the
weather and if that is the case a longish lightish hook
length and smallish hook are advised, the only trouble
with that is if the fish are reaching a torpid state
and take the bait then no bite will be registered and
this can result in a deeply hooked fish. Mind you it
shouldn't be too bad at the beginning of October but
does change during that month and can become very
difficult from then on. If you see the water looking
very clear I wouldn’t start fishing until late
afternoon or alternately try to get in one of the
lagoons/boatyards. My other tip is to not ignore bread
as a bait it can be very effective in the Autumn, one
of them foil wrapped long life loaves are ideal.

Hi Bish,

thanks for all the info.  I have looked on the net and can't find anything on
how to tie or fish the loop method.  
If you can point me in the correct direction that will be great.  I haven't
done much feeder fishing in the past.

Cheers

Tich

Hi tich,
Try looking on fishingmagic.com, there is a
diagram on there, or do a google image
search and type in 'river loop rig' and a
couple of basic diagrams are there. Dont give
up on it if it looks complicated to you at first,
its really not. My 12 year could tie it in 5 mins
after bein shown twice, its that easy if
someone shows you. If u cant get it off the
web il try n explain how to do it on here.
Fatherlord has a good point bout the time of
year. When ive holidayed on the broads ive
fished the main rivers in summer, the dykes n
boatyards in winter. The fish tend to shoal off
the river and move to the yards in winter. I
personaly, would think early october the fish
will still be in the river at horning if we havnt
started having frosts. You may wanna scale
your line and hooks down a bit to what you
would use in August thou.
Regards, Bish.

Thanks again Bish,

here is the one I have found and it seems quite straight forward.  Next
thing for me to sort out is a reel, feeders, line, hook link and hooks as I
don't think my carp tackle will be right  Playful Wink .

Well I tried putting the web link up for the one I found but for some
reason it comes up as a false site.  If you do a search on google for
'steve ringers four top winter feeder and leger rig' and follow the first
link I think it is a good diagram and explanation on how to tie it so I
will try over the weekend.

Tich

Tich I hope I am wrong but judging by what I have been
seeing and experiencing whilst fishing the Bure over the
recent weeks we would appear to be approximately 3 weeks
to 1month ahead weather wise and although I haven’t
fished Horning I have only been a short distance away and
fishing has at times been difficult which is unusual  in
early September.
So what I am saying is have a plan B in place in case
Horning doesn’t work out.
