Summer Pit - CEMEX Yateley

 

1800 - 2315

 

A lovely warm evening under a hazy full moon. Temps 21º -> 16ºC. Shirt sleeves all evening and no mozzies!

 

2 Tench: 6lb 4oz, 3lb 13oz.

 

The last Hurrah on this venue - bringing the curtain down on a splendid series of mid-week after work float fishing sessions. Won't be back here again until next june (unless we get an early October heatwave!). Fished a new swim - probably not the right time to be experimenting but it had to be done - and quite quickly had the 6lber on the bank, followed next cast by the smaller one. So just as 2 weeks ago - a brief feeding spell at dusk. Did have a few liners thereafter and fish topping in the swim - but nothing hittable. Both fish on float fished meat at a couple of rod lengths out.

Well done Chris, you have had a cracking tench year. Never fished for them myself so I’ve been following these blog entries with interest, I might try next year on some of the NAA venues.

Thanks Chris - got my head right for this venue ay last! Used to go wanting to get crucians everytime I went - and usually being disappointed - didn't catch one of the finicky little blighters all last season! This year I've been telling myself that I'm going tench fishing - so of course I've had a few crucians turn up amongst the tincas! :) 6 tench over 6lb with a couple of 7s - all float caught has made for a very satisfactory summer!
