Roman Sivak 7lb 7oz chub

Roman Sivak took full advantage of perfect conditions on the River Thames with this stunning 7lb 7oz chub.

Targeting a deep area with plenty of bankside cover, Roman presented two 16mm plum and salmon boilies wrapped in matching paste on a bottom bait rig. An early morning take resulted in the specimen chevin that is new a personal best for Roman, who said: “I knew it was a better fish but could not believe my eyes when I saw the chub in the net.”
