Match fishing legend banks personal best chub

Match angling legend Denis White had two reasons to smile after the latest match on the Yorkshire Ouse as he netted a 5lb 14oz personal best chub which helped him take a spot in the frame.

The former England international drew peg 254 on the Linton stretch of the waterway and took a gamble by fishing a groundbait feeder packed with maggots to the far bank in search of an elusive bonus fish.

It was a ploy that came good, with his only bite of the day coming from the big specimen which secured second place.
