Linear Fisheries Monster Tench by Simon Ashton

Durham’s ace specimen angler Simon Ashton travelled down to Oxfordshire’s Linear Fisheries for a week long Tench session recently and enjoyed a rather successful trip!

Switching between Inline Bolt Rig maggot and Groundbait Feeder tactics with chopped worm, Simon caught a quite superb 32 Tench over the course of the seven days, with four 9lb+ fish including a fantastic 9lb 11oz example!

All these fish, yet again, were taken on the Drennan Distance Specialist Tench & Bream 12ft 2lb rods teamed with Shimano mini Pit reels – for full details on these brilliant rods click here.
