Spring Tench Session
Karl was the first to catch and he landed a couple of small roach and a small tench from the swim next to be. I decided to fish a small patch of reeds in the middle of the pond which were constantly knocking about where the tench were moving through them. At about 12.00 the float finally slid away and I was in. I landed a small but perfectly formed tench of around 2-3lb. It put up a great fight on light tackle and reminded me of what tench fishing is all about. Can’t wait to do some more tench fishing this summer at some gravel pits I have in mind. I will keep you posted.
