A three-mile hike for 7lb 7oz Thames chub

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

RIVERS across the UK are pro­duc­ing some of their best chub form of the sea­son, and big-fish hunter Neil Wayte was cer­tainly cel­e­brat­ing fol­low­ing the cap­ture of this huge fish from the Thames.

It tipped the scales at 7lb 7oz and was fooled with a lump of home­made cheesep­a­ste which he cast to an overhanging wil­low tree 40 yards across the river.

Neil walked three miles dur­ing the course of the day and he beat the spec­i­men with 8lb line, a 6lb hook­link and a size 4 Dren­nan hook.
