A double figure tench is a fish most anglers never see let alone catch, so Tenchfishers member Eddie Court must be buzzing after tempting this near 12-pounder from Medway Valley Fisheries.

The 11lb 14oz personal best fell to double 8mm Krill boilies fished on a helicopter rig over a bed of hemp, maggots and micro pellets, and was backed up by another lovely fish going 8lb.

It came during a Tenchfishers ‘fish-in’ in which three members broke their PBs.
