Persistence paid off for Steve Fenton when he landed this 7lb 6oz chub after drawing a blank previously.
I spent just 10-15 minutes in each likely swim I came across and casted slightly upstream around 3/4s of the way across into a 10ft-deep channel.
It stayed deep the whole time and never gave me the illusion that it was a small fish.
The belly on it was something else!”
Steve’s successful tactics including liquidised bread in the feeder with breakflake on the hook.
