Big chub catch wins River Swale match

Maver and Mary’s Tackle rod Graham Skirrey showed once again why he is considered one of the top river anglers in the north when he bagged a winning 58lb of chub during the latest event on the River Swale.

With 45 quality anglers lining up to take part in the Northallerton DAC Cup, it was always going to take a good weight to scoop the victory and Graham managed to do just that by taking 16 fish on the bomb with either caster or wasp grub hookbaits from peg 31 at Scruton.

Backing weights were equally impressive, with runner up Mark Mossman taking 42lb 2oz.
