Tench Fishing Without The Tench And A Few Random Thoughts

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

The reel was loaded with 6lb Maxima Chameleon, with a six inch hook-length created by a small shot and an 8mm bead. Above that was a 3/8 ounce lead.

The bait was a single grain of corn on a size 10 Drennan Super Specialist hook. 

I fed brown crumb and corn, fishing about four rod lengths out into open water.
