Come on lads, don't be mean. Assuming the guy is not a dwarf - his hands are shoulder width apart and his elbows are bent, so he isn't holding it forward to make it look bigger. Look at the size of the tench's head compared to his hand. Hold your hands out in front of you in a similar manner and imagine a plump female tench sitting in them.... I'd give you between 5 and 7lb for that fish mate

I would say around 4LB-ish too, I've caught loads of Tench and was surprised what some of them weighed, they seem heavier than they are.

the lad must have huge hand judging by the fact you can see all of his fingers and thumb of his right hand, which makes me think the fish is not as big as l first thought.
next time you catch a decent fish and photo it lie it next to your rod or something that can be used as a measure. when having trophy shots the fish always look bigger when held away from your body. so as to weight l would'nt hazzard a guess sorry.
