MIKE TOWNSEND 10lb 5oz

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

A 300-MILE-plus round trip to a south­ern gravel pit re­warded Mike Townsend with his first tench of the sea­son – at 10lb 5oz. The York­shire rod tar­geted an area just short of a gravel bar at 40 yards. Four spods of mag­gots, hemp, pel­lets and chopped worm tempted the spec­i­men, along with a smaller one of 8lb 14oz. Both fish were taken on an open-ended feeder he­li­copter rig, with a hair-rigged worm hook­bait on a size 12 hook and 8lb hook­link.
