A month in to the campaign to catch some ( or "a" ) tench from TBS.
To say its been slow is an understatement.
Number of tench caught - 0
Number of tench seen rolling - 3 ( possibly )
Other fish caught - Bream ( lots )
Number of tench I've heard of being caught - A few. All to (very) long stay carpers. I haven't got the patience or inclination for long sessions. A long session for me is over five or six hours.
Here's some pretty pictures instead of fish
I'm off to the Kennet and Avon canal later for a week. May well catch a few tench there to get my eye in ( total bollocks of course ).
When I come back it'll be a week or so until the river season opens, so the tench campaign may be left for a while. Who knows ?
I've got some big Fens rudd on the radar and some local mullet fishing to do, if the cold northerly wind ever stops, so lots of choice.
