MATT FERNANDEZ 10lb 8oz
PERSISTENCE paid off for specimen angler Matthew Fernandez. The result? This impressive tench of 10lb 8oz. The catch comes after an enduring campaign on a southern stillwater. He said: “After three springs on the venue, I’ve been rewarded with a double-figure fish. A new approach of regular prebaiting helped me land more than 40 tench, this one being a new best. My mix consisted of Frenzied Hempseed, 6mm Krill Pellets, sweetcorn and Source boilies.” He presented a Source boilie hookbait on a heli-rig, a 3ins hooklink and a size 10 Korda Kurv Shank hook.
