This blog follows me on my travels to try and catch specimen freshwater fish of all species including carp, tench, pike, barbel, perch, roach, rudd and chub. This blog also looks into the various tactics, baits and rigs sucessfully used to catch specimen coarse fish. I have also included a venue guide giving information on open access waters accross England. This is located on the menu to the right of this page under Choppedworm venue guide.

Horseshoe Lake Tench
Horseshoe is a lake that I have wanted to fish for many years ever since I watched Matt Hayes tackle the water on Total Fishing. It is a large 60 acre lake in the shape of a Horseshoe with a shallow section named summer bay and a larger deeper section called winter bay. The plan was to fish the lake for few nights in search of the many large tench that reside beautiful water.
