Leroy Swan had a fabulous session with 4 big tench with the smallest at 9-08! The other 3 were all doubles weighing 10-04, 10-08 and a new lake record of 11-14. He also caught a common of 25-00 plus this superb mirror below of 43-06.
I’ve just analysed the Catch Return Book and the average weight of tench caught in the last 12 months has been just under 8 1/2 lbs! When you consider this not only includes autumn tench, but also males that are considerably smaller than females, you can see what a fabulous tench fishery Wingham has become.
