Chub from small river scales at 5lb 7oz

Mark Mole is encouraging more anglers to go and target small venues after he landed a series of chub to 5lb 7oz from the River Blythe.

The Birmingham-based angler dismissed the regions bigger waterways in exchange for the rarely fished venue, targeting a stretch close to the village of Meriden.

In a manic two hour period, the tip barely stayed still, with his maggot feeder attack producing a quartet of fish over the 4lb barrier and a 5lb specimen before the biggest of the day muscled in on the action.
