As the UK’s rivers enjoy one of their best starts to the season in years, Yorkshire angler Paul Kozyra joined in the fun with a cracking 93lb of chub.
Shown here is just part of his River Swale haul, which was easily enough to win a RiverFest qualifier on the river at Scruton, North Yorkshire.
Paul used stick float and caster for the haul, which comprised 28 fish and earned him a place in the big final on the River Wye.
Amazingly, the Helperby man has now qualified for all three finals of the prestigious running-water competition. Will it be third time lucky in November?
