I've tried Chris's blacj pudding suggestion a couple of times now, and had no luck, although to be fair I had no luck on corn or pellets either in the same sessions
My PB tench (in my avatar <-------) was taken on a single grain of corn on a size 16 hook fished next to some lillypads
I had some good results a couple of season ago making a paste out of high oil trout pellets, I poured some boiling water over some 3mm pellets, left them to soften and cool, then added an egg and kneeded to a paste, fishing a lump of this over a bed of the 3mm pellets worked quite well! sadly bream and carp liked it just as much!

Had some superb results like that especially with a bit of pre-baiting but it's not easy to do now that the waters are open all year.
