Pair of big rudd can’t re­sist a popped-up grub

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

BIG rudd are syn­ony­mous with sum­mer, and Matthew Fer­nan­dez is just one of many an­glers who have re­cently been tar­get­ing the species.

This fine pair, weigh­ing 2lb 14oz and 2lb 8oz, were feed­ing over a bed of Sticky Baits Krill Ac­tive mixed with hemp and pel­lets that the 29-year-old from Southamp­ton had in­tro­duced with the aid of a Spomb.

Both fish were caught from a still­wa­ter in the south of the UK on feeder rigs and mag­got hook­baits that were popped-up with a small piece of foam.
