Big fish attack helps Hellewell bag victory on Huddersfield Broad Canal

A big fish approach helped Martin Hellewell seal victory during the latest match on the Huddersfield Broad Canal.

The Trabucco Halifax rod decided to use double caster towards overhanging cover from a peg close to Cooper Bridge during the Mirfield AC Huddersfield Broad Canal Champs and was able to extract five big chub to over 4lb.

A few small roach were added later in the event and he was able to place a table topping 22lb 4oz on to the scales.

Runner up Chris Lees was never in contention to take the victory and took a bream and plenty of small roach for 9lb 4oz.
