A double after two years

A two-year quest for a double figure tench ended in success for Pete Wilson when he achieved his goal with this 10lb 3oz specimen.

It made an appearance when the 49-year-old from Southampton visited a southern stillwater and put his faith in long range tactics with inline feeders, which he had adapted himself.

The fish smashes his previous best for the species that stood at 7lb 12oz after it was fooled with artificial casters presented on a hair rig tied to a size 14 Drennan Super Specialist hook.
