Re: My bream tips

I used to have the odd session float-fishing a small Norfolk lake that held some fun-sized bream - two or three pounds - which I met a couple of times while float-fishing close in, with the 'pin. I found that if I could release them in the water, without lifting them out, they would saunter off without too much fuss and I'd carry on catching; if I had to net them out to unhook, they'd then clear off, taking their mates with them, and I was then officially just roach-and-tench-fishing.
Has anyone else found this?

I find the complete opposite. If I lose a bream when they're coming on to feed then the fishing is most often ruined for the night. If I lose one when I have been catching lots then I normally have to wait at least an hour for my next bite, but if they're in a feeding frenzy then losing a fish has no effect on the rest of the shoal, but that's rare.
