Dai Gribble's Specimen Secrets launches this May, where each week the 2017/18 Specimen Angler of the year and two-time Drennan Cup winner details how he goes about catching big fish.

Dai will focus on a different species every fortnight, showing the rigs and tactics he uses one week, followed by a more in-depth look at the baits and baiting patterns used the next week.

The launch of the series follows the announcement of Dai's second Drennan Specimen Cup win, a prestigious award run by the Angling Times to reward anglers like Dai who actively pursue giant fish from various species. Dai clinched the gong after winning several Drennan Cups for a multitude of species.

We'll have more information about the fish that clinched the cup very soon – until then, make sure you check out Angling Times each week to find out how Dai catches so many big fish!

The series kicks off with big tench, a subject Dai knows plenty about, having caught numerous double figure fish during his lifetime. Check out the rigs, the baits, the tactics and see if you can bag yourself a big tinca this spring.
