Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

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.
