My next PB 21.6.19

The Flying Tench


At the start of a new season, in case it's of any interest to anyone, here are my pbs so far. The question is, how to improve at least one of them this season given that I'm a bit of a cushy 'pleasure angler', not into all night stints and with health issues hindering also:


roach 1lb 9oz River Farm Lake, Fareham Oct 2009 float single caster

rudd 2lb 2oz Aquatek Lake, Woolhampton May 2009 float single maggot

dace 7oz River Kennet, Newbury Nov 2014 float 4 maggots

chub 6lb 9oz River Kennet, Newbury Nov 2003 feeder 2 dendrobaena

barbel 8lb 0oz R. Kennet weirpool, Thatcham Aug 2006 ledger luncheon meat

bream 6lb 6oz Orchid Lakes, Dorchester May 2019 feeder 8mm pellet

carp 18lb 14oz Bell Wood Lake, Newbury July 2000 2 floating dog biscuits

crucian 1lb 11oz Dixons Lake, Thatcham July 2002 ledgered sweetcorn 3' tail

goldfish 1lb 5oz North Lake, Greenham April 2008 float lift method (maggot?)

tench 6lb 4oz Wylie's Lake, Newbury May 2000 float pellet paste

perch 3lb 6oz Aquatek Lake, Woolhampton March 2010 feeder - popped up lobworm

zander c 1lb Rutland Water Sept 2018 jigged lure

pike 22lb 4oz River Thames, Goring Dec 2014 wobbled smelt

eel 2lb 3oz Wingham Lake May 2009 feeder lobworm

grayling 1lb 4oz River Lambourn, Newbury Dec 2011 float single maggot

brown trout 3lb 4oz River Kennet, Newbury June 1998 wobbled smelt!

rainbow trout 2lb 14oz Pond near Salisbury May 1985 fly fished - fly plus pellet!


So there it is. One or two good fish, and many happy memories. 6 on float, 6 ledger and 5 other. I still hope to improve on a few of them. Comments and insults welcome!
