PAUL POT­TER fol­lowed up a 7 lb 9 oz chub from the Long­ham free stretch of the Dorset Stour with this 7 lb spec­i­men. Fish­ing from dusk till 11pm, lo­cal Paul added three oth­ers, tempt­ing them all on a Hin­ders Elips Dum­bell wrapped in match­ing paste, pre­sented over a bed of pel­lets. Paul said: “I can’t be­lieve I’ve been lucky enough to catch two 7 lb ‘chevins’ in a few weeks, and I reckon big­ger ones are still to come. The win­ter looks pros­per­ous!”

SPEC­I­MEN ace Alan Rio fished scaled-down carp tac­tics to tempt this 2 lb 12 oz roach from an undis­closed still­wa­ter. Wok­ing, Sur­rey­based Alan leg­ered an 8 mm boilie over hemp and liq­uidised corn, us­ing a he­li­copter rig, 6 lb main line and a 4 lb hook link.
