Specimen fishing.

Went for a three day tench trip down London way, knew it would be difficult but there are big tench to be caught there.  I fish the local waters and catch lots of fish including that 8lb-14oz beauty mentioned in a previous blog but.  That but is the lack of doubles to be caught.  For me there is an ellement of excitement just knowing that special fish is there and although I enjoy the local trips that excitment is missing.

Ok this trip I blanked - total nothing - but---   I saw one caught a few pegs away  11lb-12oz  -  that gets the blood pumping and I'll return again just for the chance of a fish like that.  I'll probably blank though.
