River Record Caught On Angling Times Feature

Big fish man Gary Knowles has taken what is thought to be the River Dove’s biggest-ever chub – and he did it while on an Angling Times feature!


The Cheshire-based angler banked the 6lb-plus specimen during a short afternoon session on the Staffordshire venue.


It fell to simple feeder-fished breadflake tactics.


“I’ve been fishing the Dove for years and this is the first 6lb fish that I’ve ever heard of coming from the water,” said Gary.


“I’ve done some research and no-one seems to know of anything bigger. To catch it while putting together an AT feature was the icing on the cake.”
