New personal best tench on final cast

This superb 9lb 2oz tench was caught by Iain McDonald during a short evening session at a local southern stillwater.

The 42-year-old from Canterbury opted for a maggot feeder approach, casting to a silty area between two gravel bars but had to wait until the final cast of the day to record his new personal best.

Iain’s setup included a Korum Grub Feeder with hair-rigged fake maggots on a Korum Power size 14 hook and an 8lb fluorocarbon0 hooklink. He said: “It was my last cast of the day as I had run out of maggots and hadn’t caught anything but thankfully this fish came along.”
