Many thanks for your trouble Paul.. I've had a very helpful email from a Chap at Portsmouth & District AC and he has sent me links to the waters that can be fished on DT. Funtley and Carrow Row are the two that grab me so me thinks that Dave and I will just have to fish both. Watch this space for the outcome

I've not fished that particular venue Dave I was just wondering if it contained any bigger ones,I'm struggling at the moment to find a suitable venue that contains say an 8 plusser.I only started targeting tench last spring,so I've still a lot to learn,had plenty last season only upto 6 and a half,but good fun nonetheless.Gravel pits are the obvious venues but they all seem to be rammed with carp anglers.

Regret to say Mark, wherever you go you will be amongst Carp anglers! Have you thought of going down to Linear at Witney? There are some clonkers in there by all accounts...

Yes Bill I ventured down there last season a couple of times.Both times was tempted to drive straight back home,but having travelled 75 miles I just had to fish where I could get,instead of where I needed to be.It would seem the sponsored masses have the place sewn up,with social media having a detrimental effect also.....shame because the fish I desire live there.

It seems that way Bill, having spoken to several tench anglers and having driven around the whole site myself.I phoned the bailiff last week and he advised me not to bother travelling and that's midweek!
