String of tench to 8lb 3oz from Bawburgh

Nathan Long has got his tench campaign on the Bawburgh Lakes complex off to a flying start landing a string of fish to a best of 8lb 3oz.

His first 48 hour session produced a brace of ‘sevens’ weighing 7lb 14oz and 7lb 10oz, and he then returned a few days later to take a male of 7lb 7oz and the eight pounder.

“On my first trip I saw a few fish rolling over an area of deeper water at 30yds range and this is where I have focused my efforts,” he told Angling Times. “I didn’t put much bait in as the water temperature was still very cold, just enough to keep the fish interested if they turned up.

“All my fish have come to my left-hand-rod which I’d rigged up with an inline method feeder and two hair-rigged fake casters.”
