    Andy I use a salmon egg hook, put just a small piece of worm on, with no weight and a very small float,(sometime no float) and flip it very close to the bank, the small bream will dart out, because they are hiding in rocks and other cover, Be ready they are fast, because they don"t venture far form the cover. Hope this helps :smile2:

    I use a tiny 1/64 ounce trout fly tipped with a bit of nightcrawler, waxworm, or mealworm. I fish this inches off the bank.
