Double-figure Norfolk tinca!

by Angling Times |

A NORFOLK gravel pit has produced the biggest tench of the spring so far, with this 10lb 6oz specimen falling to the rod of Tenchfishers group member, Joe Campen.

After a biteless first night to his session, Joe got up at first light and began searching for rolling fish. After walking the complex, he found a few tench showing on a different lake and so decided to up sticks and move.

He cast his maggot feeders out on the new water, with three red maggots as hookbait, and all was quiet until lunchtime, when he spotted another fish roll.

He wound in and cast his feeder rig right on the area where he’d seen the fish, and just 10 minutes later it rattled off and he landed the 10-pounder, which set a new PB for Joe.
