Tench, Horseshoe Lake

Trying to find a swim to fish on a bank holiday weekend was a lot harder than I thought. The intention was to try for Tench at Linear but there was literally no space on St. Johns, Hardwick, Manor and Oxlease. A fact finding mission to Linch Hill yielded a lot of information but the fishing was left for a quieter time so Horseshoe lake was were a line was finally cast some 4 1/2 hours after leaving the house.
The shortened session was still a success as a first (and second) ever Horseshoe Tench was landed.My first was probably one of the smallest in the lake and although it was a pretty fish it never got weighed.
The final fish of the session weighed 7lb 2oz and both fish fell for chopped worm-feeder tactics.
