    Well, had a little session this afternoon on the same venue as my last tench catch. Had a brilliant time to be honest. Caught probably 50 roach and perch upto half a lb. Also 3 tench as the light started to fade.

    First was smaller at 3-4lb (I didn't weigh it)


    Second was a bit bigger by maybe half a pound (again didn't weigh that one)


    Last one was my pb tench!

    Weighed in at 7lb 3oz.


    All caught on the method, about a rod length out. Strawberry and hemp groundbait, hemp and 2mm pellets. Hookbait was corn.

    Right Binks, it may have taken another couple of weeks but skill is undoubtedly shining through - take that..............

    PS Look at the size of his pecs, that's going to be some chunky tinca in years to come.............
    That's about as big as a fish that big gets

    Where can I get my hands on one of those extra small disgorgers Jerry... And don't say the same place I got my forceps

    I bet that fish was a good three ounces really... If not more!

    Nice tench Nicky. The start date of this challenge was midnight 16th March 2016 as stated in my opening post. It ends on 31st of August 2016.
    Can you confirm this fish was caught within the dates above as your photobucket pictures may suggest an earlier date?
    Sorry to be picky....

    Hi Peter yes it was caught a few weeks ago I was struggling to upload the photo so remembered I had a photo bucket account which I haven't used in ages so I used that to share the photo

    There you go Binks, caught today among the crues - probably my last try unless the competition improves.

    As I haven't fished for the other end of the challenge since late March I think I'll devote a bit of time there after the holiday..............
