Getting off the beaten track saw Paul Scott land this new pb chub of 7lb 1oz from the River Wensum.
Despite heavy rain and windy conditions, the 38-year-old Norwich-based angler was keen to get on the bank and targeted an un-fished stretch of the waterway which he suspected might hold a few big fish. Using bread flake on a size 6 Drennan Super Specialist hook and feeding liquidised bread in a small feeder, Paul cast his hookbait under an overhanging bush. “I decided to visit two swims where I had recently caught a couple of 5lbers including my previous best of 5lb 10oz but didn't have a knock,” he said. “I was soaking wet so I upped sticks and decided to walk further down to an un-fished spot that looked really fishy and had plenty of cover and I caught the fish on my first cast.”
