The second week in May will go down in Three Ponds History as the week when a 10lb Tench was landed, and just like buses, not one but TWO came along in quick succession!!
The first went to Henry Walsh one of our long time residents, who has been fishing the lake for years. He needed the help of a passer by to help land the beast as his chest isnt what it used to be and frankly he was “Knackered!” The fish wieghed in at a huge……….10 1/2lb !! Well done Henry, unfortunately no camera was at hand but it was witnessed by several owners. The beauty fell to good old luncheon meat in the margin.
A few days later one of our regular Day Ticket anglers landed another that went over 10lb, this time on paste.
Oak Pond is certainly responding well to the growing reputation as an excellent Tench water. As if to highlight that I fished the other day for a couple of hours, bagged a couple but was not too excited that they only went to 5lb and 6 1/2lb !! Lets hope for many more, Dave
