Big chub win Staffs and Worcs canal match

A decision to target big chub during the latest event on Staffs and Worcester Canal helped Rob Buxton land top spot with 21lb 3oz.

The Maver Total Fishing abandoned plans to fish for the shoals of small silvers during the Wolverhampton AA contest at Wombourne in favour of a bonus fish approach from peg 12.

It was a tactical decision that paid off big time with individual specimens to over 4lb falling for his caster hookbaits.
