Carl Welch has continued to work his way through the chub stocks of the River Wey with this 8lb 3oz specimen the latest to grace his net.
The London-based security guard used a 16mm Aqua Dynamix The Maggot boilie hookbait which he offered over four freebies on a size 8 Korda hook.
Carl said: “I watched the fish circle the bait before it actually took it, and then it made a run for the nearest snag. Thankfully I managed to keep it clear of all the snags and after six minutes I had it in the net.”
He also managed a 10lb 3oz barbel during his session on the CEMEX Angling controlled stretch of the waterway.
