WHEN it comes to ‘his and hers’ matching sets, this fine tench brace is up there with the best.

Tench expert Chris Turnbull bagged the female scaling 10 lb 10 oz alongside the male at a new personal best of 9 lb 15 oz.

The duo topped a stunning 50 fish haul over a four-day period at a Norfolk gravel pit.

Angling illustrator and artist Chris said: ‘They were all caught from a 24 acre Norfolk gravel pit from the back of a hump at 30 yards.

‘Bait was three fake plastic casters hair rigged on size 14 Pallatrax The Hook tied to 12 lb braid hooklinks and 10 lb mainlines, presented on 2 oz helicopter rigs with walnut sized PVA mesh bags of casters hooked on,’ he added.
