The Fishing Channel: Mark Pollard Bream on the River Yare, Norfolk

Mark 'Polly' Pollard grew up fishing on rivers and canals. Even with the proliferation of commercial fisheries, nothing excites him more than fishing a good river and filling his boots/Keepnet. He rates the River Yare as the best river in England for fishing. You might agree with him after you watch him catch bream on the feeder that are the size of dustbin lids.
