Nathan Buckingham 8lb Chub

5 minutes in the right spot was all that was needed for Nathan Buckingham as he landed himself a new personal best in the shape in this lovely 8lb chub..

He told us “After finishing work, I headed down to Kings Weir for a few hours fishing and just five minutes after casting I connected with what felt like a decent fish. A good battle on my light rod followed, before I netted this massive chub. Tipping the scales round to 8lb exactly, it blew me away! Kings Weir is such an exciting place to fish, with so many amazing fish in there, when the tip goes round you never quite know what could be on the end!” said Nathan, who offered a small chunk of side-hooked luncheon meat.
