Hi Si and Chris,

I most certainly wouldn't consider myself a Tench angler but do love to catch them, generally from late March to Late July, will be looking in to pick up tips............

Hi chaps,
Being a 'seasonal' kinda guy I'll be back on the hunt again come the spring. The place I'm on is about 60 acres so it's not so much catching them, it's finding the little buggers
I dispensed with the alarms and light bobbins and switched to a sliding float down the deep margins, brilliant fun. Can't wait for next year now. No monsters yet but some around 8lb.
Some tincas to stir the loins...





Need to get through your book Chris which was bought for me by the WBC for my 40th.

Ian

Nice bit of fishing by the sound of it Ian, location in 60 acres shouldn't pose too many problems, apart from lots of early morning walks

Almost cant wait for next spring. All last years fish were stalked in the margins and ive never had so much fun in my life (well if you take women out of the equation that is) or so many frustrations. It still amazes how clever tench can be at avoiding the maggot with a hook in it. Crafty jiggers. and cant believe how many different types of hook got straightened by tench hooked close in. Hoping for my first nine come late may or june.

Paul

Paul, did you ever try those Pallatrax hooks ? i have used them down to size 12 without any problems, 10 and above the Kamasan B775s are probably the best of the lot

I do love a tinca. Looking forward to trying a new venue come may. I never tire of catching a tench (artist formerly known as nicetench).
