Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

TAR­GET­ING a south­ern gravel pit for three years re­sulted in Daniel Wool­cott fi­nally land­ing his tar­get of a dou­ble-figure tench – in the shape of this fan­tas­tic 11lb 3oz spec­i­men. Daniel told An­gling Times: “I’ve put a lot of ef­fort and time into catch­ing this fish. Ev­ery year I failed, but this year it’s fi­nally come good.” Daniel used he­li­copter rigs in his ap­proach. These con­sisted of 8lb Dren­nan Sup­plex Fluoro­car­bon hook links, size 14 Su­per Spe­cial­ist hooks baited with three live mag­gots, and a cage feeder of ground­bait, dead mag­gots and pel­lets. He added: “It was an im­mense fish – it was great to see it!”
