Help on Tench Tackle

Post  Phil Underwood on Tue Aug 06, 2013 10:53 am

Hello Everyone,

Just after some pointers on which tackle would suit a alround Tench set up. At the moment I am only using stalking rods and small baitrunner reels. Now that I am getting back into fishing now, I would like to up grade my rods and reels, just I am a little lost on what to go for.

One water I fish is about 75% weed at the moment so only fishing out about 20 metres. The other one I fish, is weed free and  I am going out to about 50 metres max.

So any pointers would be of great help. Thankyou

Phil Underwood

Hi Phil,

It depends on your budget and the size of tench you're hoping to encounter?
Assuming you're targetting reasonable sized fish then I would suggest looking for a rod around 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 tc, anything lighter you'll struggle for control, heavier and you may as well carp fish! I currently use Drennan Tench & Bream rod which I rate highly. A nice blend of power to cast and heave if required, but subtle enough with small hooks. I think they may have just gone out of production, but there should still be a few about.
If you're looking to fish at any sort of distance be wary of any rod that feels a bit 'soft'.
Any decent mid sized reel should, I think Shimano bait runners take some beating for this kind of stuff.
Helpful?

Regards, Martin

Thankyou for taking your time once more to help me out.
I will have a look out for those rods, I belive they may out of my price range.
Thanks for your time
