6lb 1oz Chub From The Ock

Matthew Davies visited a stretch of the River Ock that he used to fish as a teenager and was soon steering this huge chub into the landing net.


“It’s the biggest chub I have ever known from the river. 4lb-plus was a good fish, 5lb very rare and a 6lb fish was unheard of!” 

The fish was caught on a big lobworm, float fished under a small 2.4g Drennan Loafer, with 5lb line direct to a size 8 Kamasan B983 Wide Gape Specialist hook.
