Gear up for spec­i­men tench this month

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Magic Moment - PHO­TOG­RA­PHER: Mark Parker

THERE are few species more syn­ony­mous with spring and sum­mer angling than tench. But al­though cast­ing a float next to a set of lily pads au­to­mat­i­cally comes to mind when you think about tar­get­ing tench, the big­ger spec­i­mens these days are nor­mally taken on scaled-down carp set-ups with hair-rigs and bolt rigs now com­mon­place. If you fancy catch­ing a big tench this sea­son you should check out the sim­ple two-bait mix on page 24 that top spec­i­men hunter Paul Elt uses to at­tract large gravel pit tincas.
