Groundhog Day Tench Fishing On An English Estate Lake

I enjoyed my last angling session so much, I returned a day later. After all, fishing is about pleasure, and enjoyment always has to be the most important box that you tick.

I was on the previous lake, in the same peg, fishing with identical tackle and bait and targeting tench once again.

Although it was a slow start, it picked up later, and with a good number of fish on the bank, it was a case of groundhog day all round. You can follow the session via the video below.

The tackle that I fished with was as follows: Fox Barbel Special 11’ 1.5 test curve rod and an Okuma Zeon reel. 

The reel was loaded with 6lb Maxima Chameleon, with a six inch hook-length of 5lb Drennan Team England, created by a small swivel and an 8mm bead. Above that was a 1/4 ounce lead. 

The bait was a Corn-shaped sinker boilie hair-rigged to a size 10 Drennan Boilie Hook. I loose fed brown crumb and corn.
