Northern tench breaks 10lb

A double-figure tench is a rare specimen in the North, where the fish don’t enjoy the milder conditions found further down the country.
All the more reason, then, for Colin Hebb to be celebrating.
He struck gold when he banked this 10lb 11oz specimen from a lake in Yorkshire.
The 31-year-old market trader, from Cottingham, East Yorks, legered three grains of corn hair-rigged to the back of a size 6 hook.
