Personal best 6lb 5oz chub caught from the Trent

A short session on an undisclosed stretch of the River Trent in Nottinghamshire ended with Simon Lewis landing this 6lb 5oz personal best chub.

After netting a pb 6lb specimen a fortnight ago from a virtually untouched area of the waterway, the Nottinghamshire-rod was determined to repeat the feat ¬ and returned to do just that.

With darkness setting in, the specimen hunter felt the opportunity to meet his goal had passed, but his kit was eventually called into action when the ‘lump’ fell for a small dumbbell boilie presented on a bolt rig setup.
