Chris Ladds’ beautiful Rudd

Berkshire specimen angler Chris Ladds caught this magnificent Rudd from an Oxfordshire lake recently, which weighed 2lb 14oz, caught as part of a fantastic quartet of fish.  Chris also took other specimens of 2lb 12oz, 2lb 11oz & 2lb 11oz, which won him a weekly Drennan Cup award in the Angling Times.

Chris fished a swimfeeder set up at around 35 yards range, selecting a size 14 Drennan Wide Gape Specialist hook baited with double maggot.
