Lots of tench in the Forth and Clyde canal. Best tench I have had was 6lb while carp fishing at the wides at Kelvinhead.

Bream are in this stretch too.

Feed heavy to get through the roach and perch. Don't go below 4lb line due to the lilies and weeds.

The cheaper tough sweetcorn is good. Two or three bits on a size ten hook.
