Double-figure tench showing already!

A DOUBLE figure tench is a very special fish, but Andy Nichols breaks the benchmark regularly at Watermark Fisheries, as this early-season 10lb 4oz specimen shows.

South Cerney-based Andy used a piece of imitation sweetcorn over a bed of maize, pellets and chopped boilies to tempt the big tinca while fishing for carp on Bradley’s lake at the Gloucestershire venue.

The edge of a gravel plateau at 50 yards range proved the killing zone for Andy, who has had tench to over 11lb from the same lake in the past.
