BAG 50lb OF CHUB, BAR­BEL AND MORE

Angling Times (UK) - - NORTH -

IT MAY look like lit­tle more than a small stream but the River Swale at Mor­ton in North York­shire is alive with big fish.

Run by Northaller­ton AC, the stretch is throw­ing up stun­ning catches of chub and bar­bel. A re­cent River­fest match on the venue saw nets top­ping nearly 50lb, and Angling Times writer Dave Har­rell qual­ify for the big­money fi­nal later in the year.

Like most who fish here, Dave used wag­gler tac­tics with loosefed cast­ers to tempt chub to 4lb-plus, but this venue also pro­vides some great catches on the stick float, bomb and feeder, par­tic­u­larly when the wa­ter is up.
