A very pleasant surprise while after tench and the Premium Bonds draw

Although the last session after tench didn’t work out, nevertheless I was inspired, and so the following morning I was back out again in pursuit of tincas.

On this occasion, knowing that I only had an hour or so, I went to a local pool.

I have caught tench from there in the past but just an occasional fish and it’s obvious that they aren’t resident in large numbers.

Fishing with the same gear as the previous trip, the only difference was that I switched from a size 8 hook to a size 10.

From the off, I was getting plucks on the grain of sweetcorn from small roach and then it went very quiet.
