Home­work pays with big Nor­folk tinca

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

PUTTING in the home­work paid off for Steve Ch­es­ney, who banked this per­sonal-best 10lb 10oz tench from Baw­burgh Lakes in Nor­folk.

The Suf­folk rod had spent plenty of time lo­cat­ing an ideal spot be­fore wet­ting a line, and even­tu­ally set­tled on a clear spot 60 yards out.

Over the course of the two-day ses­sion he in­tro­duced 13 pints of hemp and caster, and that bait com­bi­na­tion cer­tainly stirred a re­ac­tion, with six fish – in­clud­ing an 8lb 6oz male tench – fall­ing for a cou­ple of leg­ered fake cast­ers be­fore the elu­sive dou­ble came to the net.
