Ian Wynter, 7lb 11oz Chub!

“That was certainly worth the change in stretch”

After a rather slow start to a session on the river Thames in Buckinghamshire, Ian Wynter drove 25 minutes to a new stretch upriver and was rewarded for his efforts when he banked this 7lb 11oz chub.

Fishing an 18mm custom bait below a 28g bomb wrapped in a halibut and cheese flavoured paste, he received a ‘one toner’ within an hour of casting out and instantly knew he was into a good fish.

He wasn’t sure what species it was, but when he glimpsed a big chub in the depths, he was certainly pleased. Weighing 7lb 11oz it’s not far short of his PB of 8lb 2oz, and was certainly worth the change in stretch.

Well done Ian!
