Thomas Humphries 10lb 12oz Tench

Sweetcorn was the key to the capture of this stunning 10lb 12oz tench for Thomas Humphries.

The specimen hunter targeted his local syndicate in the south of the country and put the budget bait to good use by hair-rigging four grains – topped by a single grain of ESP Buoyant Sweetcorn.

Thomas’ rig was a blowback variety which incorporated a size 10 Korda Kurv shank hook tied to Super Specialist Sink Braid.
