    I have spoken to a few Anglers on my current favourite water about catching the elusive tench and the best bait to do so. I will get some worms later and have hemp and sweetcorn mixed with gb.

    Re: Daren't valley 0.75lb by The Tackle Box.

    I used mine today for floater fishing and caught 11 carp to 8lb all on crust. I missed loads but I paid attention and enjoyed it. It barely merits a mention in the HDYGO thread and we all know what...
