    Chris, I think you will find Mr Marsden has written a few books on his bream exploits with Mr Bibby and Roger Harker.

    That's brought back some memories ....

    That's from about 40 odd years ago .... (when I had some hair) -- and an 8 lb bream would made headlines in the angling papers .

    We dreamed of catching a double figure bream in those daysnever imagining that one day a ten pound bream would hardly merit a mention ...

    Show some respect Corker, Mr Bibby was a leg end in his day, he was one of the first to wear re-entry shields

    Blimey Bibby you looked good at 50 years old!

    Serious question, why do bream go &quot;two tones&quot;, like the one on the left?

    Steve,

    No-one really knows .... it's just something that happenswith their pigmentation...

    People used to say/think it was because they buried themselves in the mud -- but we disproved that when we caught one with the 'two-tone' on only one side of its body ..... and we've had them with the dark side at the back, and some with the dark side at the front ...
