It does get busy never been but heard the tails of how busy it gets was thinking of having a go early spring mid week to go have a go for them but dont know if i could cope with the rat race its whats realy turning me of carp fishing to many idiots all the gear and no idea fishing etiquette is fastly becoming extinctYes. But painfully busy by all accounts.
Chunky monkey! Get in there Chris!I never thought I'd see a tench over 7lb in my part of the world. I suspect that reappraising my initial 6lb target to 7lb was pretty reasonable. Having my hand forced to up it to 8lb is probably a bridge too far, at least for a year or two.
Every single tench water I've ever fished Mark has always seen the carp anglers catch a bigger stamp of tench than any of the dedicated tench anglers have...I've had carp anglers tell me all about the accidental 8's. 9's and 10's they have had during the night, it gets a bit soul-destroying...but then you realise the anglers reporting the 9's and 10's aren't actually weighing them..Beautiful fish Chris, I bet she gave you a good scrap !
I'm still one ounce short of a six, though the water I fish has produced 8's to the carp boys.
