Paul Calow’s first session on running water in over a decade produced this 6lb 2oz chub from the River Wye.
It was the first time the sales director from Oxford had fished the famous Herefordshire waterway, and he did so under the expert guidance of angling guide Kenny Parsons.
Paul said: “It really was a session of firsts for me. The trip included more than 20 chub including another of note at 4lb 13oz and six barbel to 4lb.”
All of his fish were taken on running feeder rigs with Hinders Elips pellets on 3ft, 12lb braided hooklinks.
