James Norton was trying his luck for pike at Laneborough when he caught something very unexpected…

James caught a 7 pound 10 oz bream last Sunday (02 June) on the hot water stretch at Lanesborough. He was after pike, and would you believe, he caught the big bream on a small copper spoon! It was hooked in the mouth, not foul hooked , leaving  James baffled as to why it went for the spoon!
