to be honest though, you never truly know whats under the water, just because very little has been found for zander in the torne doesnt mean their isnt any, in certain places then yea, but down that end could be possible

been told tyram fisheries used to have a pike syndicate water years ago, also that they stocked some Zeds.

if there is any in torne then this could have been a likely source.
