Steak and cheese fool Ure chub net

Thinking outside the box can sometimes pay dividends as Dave Robson found out when he took victory in the latest event on the River Ure with 28lb 8oz of big chub.

While most of the field decided to use conventional offerings such as worms and bread during the competition at Ripon, the Kippax Tackle Box rod alternated between lumps of cheese and steak to net eight fish to 4lb.

Weights slumped off dramatically from then on, with Leeds Angling’s Steve Beckwith needing just 6lb 4oz for second spot.
