Hi Wayne, welcome to the forum (y)

I love catching Tench too ; no matter how big they are; although the bigger they are the better :)

Don’t forget to post your catches (good and not so good) in the ‘How did you get on’ thread.

Tight lines

Keith

Welcome to the forum. I too love tench probably because I catch so few but they are my favourite fish and bring a smile to my face irrespective of size. There are hundreds of threads and posts mostly fishing related but some which provide a welcome diversion and enable members to discuss other interests and pursuits. Please contribute to threads, create your own and tell us of your success or otherwise in the HDYGO thread.

Welcome to FM Wayne, had my very first golden tench a month or so ago.

John do reckon golden tench come in easily when Hooked compared to the normal coloured olive tench ?
A club water I fished that had them in ,they came in very easily, Crucians fought harder than the golden tench.
Was good in a match because they were weight builders,get into a shoal of them and you could get a good weight in no time.

Interesting you should ask Mark, I’ve only caught two but have also had reports from other members captures and we all agree. Initially they go off like Usain Bolt and then very quickly give up and come in without any fight. Regular tench do eventually wave the white flag but not before a spirited fight, not that I’ve caught one over four and a half pounds!
