Pel­let hook­bait fools Avon gi­ant

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

THE Hamp­shire Avon proved again why it’s one of the finest big chub venues in the UK by pro­duc­ing this 7lb 11oz per­sonal best for Jim McKe­own.

The for­mer tackle dealer from Ford­ing­bridge used sim­ple ground­bait feeder tac­tics and a 10mm pel­let hook­bait to land the fish dur­ing a ses­sion at Red­brook. The spec­i­men beats Jim’s pre­vi­ous best for the species by 15oz, and was beaten with a size 10 hook.
