I've been a bit quiet of late, mainly because of lack of fish! I've decided, whilst the rivers are shut, to tackle a couple of waters that are pretty difficult but known to hold good tench and carp. It finally paid off tonight after a run of 4 blanks, with this tench of 6lb 8oz, a new pb
Caught on good old meat. The fish fought extremely hard amongst the pads, forcing me to pull and cut through the pads on several occasions.
