Darryn Stolworthy 12lb 2oz Tench

Former Drennan Cup winner, Darryn Stolworthy has banked the biggest reported tench of the season so far with this beast at 12lb 2oz.
 The Norfolk specialist angler fished a Cambridgeshire pit that had produced one tench all year, and that fish had fallen to a carp angler. However, knowing the quality of the fish in these, Darryn wasn’t deterred, and landed one smaller fish and lost another before landing the twelve-pounder. It’s the same fish caught by Dai Gribble a few years ago at 14lb 14oz, and had Darryn caught it a few weeks earlier, before it’d spawned, he reckons it would’ve been an even more impressive fish. Maggot feeders cast over a small amount of feed at 50 yards, using a worm kebab on the hook, did the damage.
