You don’t have to venture far from civilisation for picturesque fishing, as this chub proves.
The upper Great Ouse in Buckingham town centre was the venue that produced this scale-perfect 5lb 3oz fish for Adam Perna.
The 27-year-old tiler from nearby Bicester in Oxfordshire trotted maggots at dusk.
He said: “It wasn’t the biggest chub in the world at 5lb 3oz, but it was taken right in the town centre, in the park, and my mate managed to get a great photo.
“It just shows what sort of fishing there is on your doorstep, you don’t have to walk miles into the countryside to get decent chub.”
