Kayaker's chub quest

A short session fishing from a kayak helped Josh Fisher net this 6lb 1oz chub from a Norfolk waterway.

The Norwich-based all-rounder has taken to the water on the vessel on numerous occasions to reach stretches that are otherwise inaccessible.

Arriving at his chosen area for a few hours lure fishing it didn’t take long for the specimen to grab his artificial offering.

“One of my main aims this winter is to catch a 7lb chub and I’m confident that the best way to achieve this is by visiting spots that have barely, if ever, seen an angler before,” said Josh.
