Mag­nif­i­cent ‘seven’ from Great Ouse

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

STEVE Stones got his win­ter chub cam­paign off to a flyer with this 7lb 6oz Great Ouse fish.

The 45-year-old Ko­rum con­sul­tant from Stam­ford, Lincs, had been try­ing to catch a ‘seven’ from the Mid­lands wa­ter­way for the past four sea­sons, and he fi­nally achieved his goal dur­ing an evening ses­sion last week.

The thick­set fish, which is a new per­sonal best by 1oz, fell to a paste hook­bait mounted on a size 8 hook and pre­sented on a short 10lb braided hook­link.
