Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

COLIN Hebb fished an over­grown lake that doesn’t see many an­glers – and nabbed this 12lb 4oz tench.

The spe­cial­ist from Cot­ting­ham, East Yorks, cut a small open­ing in the reeds be­fore flick­ing out two grains of leg­ered corn pre­sented on a size 6 hook at­tached to 15lb coated braid.

Switch­ing to bread­flake on the hook, he added a 4lb 11oz fish from the lake in the north of the UK.
