I always said southerners had it easy.

Back in the day up here you're ears would prick up at a 15 pounder and twenties were a dream.

Nowadays a 20 is on the cards and it's a thirty which makes your ears prick up.

It really was grim up north! :laughs:

I bet you put eight pound tench back without a photograph too. :tongues:

I'm currently thinking about having an early season trip to the Fens for a spot of Tench fishing with my little lad.

The Ball n Chain wouldn't let me take him last year because he was only 7. :hissy: :hissy: :hissy:

I used to get bottles of wormz, liquid worms extract.

It stank to high heaven and if I was knocking groundbait up on a Sunday morning after a heavy session on a Saturday, I'd be baulking my guts inside out, it did seem to pull the bream and tench in though!

Never seen it for years????

I need some worms so will order some of the liquids too and report back.

Like the idea of the castor liquid in a bag full of castors

It was my first day tenching this year, a cool easterly wind seemed to put them down and I had a day of contemplation instead.
Still it gave me chance to get my act together and iron out my rusty methods and casting abilities.
I remember the old liquid worm mix that was available and it stunk, also it was a bugger to get off your clothes and hands afterwards... but still its probably worth a try.

Nope, saw a few around me but they didn’t fancy my baits! Turned cold this morning. Next time!

Was a beautiful place to blank though

I won’t be out again until after Easter Sunday. Good luck Jason, think a softly softly approach is the way with this cooler weather. Maybe even just single bookies or bags at showing fish. Let us know how it goes

First session for me on syndicate today in six degrees and easterly wind, boilie on one rod corn on another and tried different natural baits on third, not a sniff all day! Won’t be going back until that wind changes!

That wind is bitter! Not a lot of good for fishing, or sitting outside
