Scott Smith 8lb Chub

After work success for Scott Smith!

After finishing work early, fireplace installer Scott Smith headed down to his local River Thames in search of a chub or two. Whilst he only caught the one fish, it turned out to be a good one, in the shape of this 8lb beast.

He told us “It’s a new PB and fell to a 15mm boilie fished with a little bag of crushed offerings. The chub gave a good scrap, trying to do me in some snags on my left-hand margin, but thankfully I steered it clear. I’d never seen a chub so big!”
