TENCHFISHERS’ club chairman Paul Thompson hasn’t been blessed with lots of double-figure tincas but has done it twice in a matter of weeks, crowned by this 12 lb 9 oz monster.

The 42-year-old, from Chalfont, Buckinghamshire, targeted a southern stillwater where his feeder fished helicopter rig scored a four-fish haul including the 12-pounder.

But Paul doesn’t think it’s just his rig which has caused his change of luck for the big ‘uns – check out this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine for the natural phenomena which might be bringing him luck.

There’s also two other double-figure tench pictured in this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine as they have gone into a feeding frenzy.
