Classic tac­tics for 7lb chub

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

THE tra­di­tional tac­tic of touch­legering with bread­crust can be just as dev­as­tat­ing as more mod­ern ap­proaches – as Jack Pells proved when he net­ted this 7lb 1oz chub.

The Wal­ton-on-Thames an­gler banked it just on dark­ness from a Thames trib­u­tary af­ter try­ing out a num­ber of dif­fer­ent swims.

Jack (26) said: “My tar­get was to catch a 6lb fish, so when I looked at the scales and they read 7lb 1oz I was blown away.”
