Im­pres­sive tench ends a lean spell

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

COLIN Hebb man­aged to avoid 10 blank ses­sions on the bounce when he net­ted this 11lb tench from a north­ern stillwater.

Having strug­gled to get any bites for weeks on end, the East York­shire-based an­gler turned to float­fished bread­flake in a bid to bring the glum run to an end.

Sec­onds af­ter the float buried, he was forced to pile on the pres­sure, and Colin said: “It went ab­so­lutely crazy and started tear­ing through the weeds at a rate of knots. I had to re­ally give it some stick to make sure I came out on top.”

The fish was beaten on 12lb main­line and a size 6 hook.
