In the last few remaining days of the river season a simply remarkable chub catch was taken, as two mates fishing next to each other landed chub of 8lb 3oz and 8lb 5oz, with both bites coming within moments of each other.
Once in the net, it was clear Omar had caught something special, so he called his friend and experienced Thames angler, Adam Bassimeh, to come and help with the weighing.
“Adam soon arrived, and as soon as he did, Sam’s rod went and he hooked another big fish! After a tough battle, another huge chub was landed, and the three of us couldn’t believe what we were seeing. Adam weighed them both, with mine hitting 8lb 3oz, Sam’s a massive 8lb 5oz. We were all stunned at what we were seeing!”
Well done Omar and Sam!
