6lb 7oz personal best chub from Middle Severn

Lawrence Breakspear has caught his biggest ever chub from the Middle Severn – this 6lb 7oz specimen.

The venue regular popped-up a large piece of breadcrust smeared with Primula Cheese and prawn paste off two LG shot close to a sunken willow tree. He then fed mashed bread and bread flake over a two hour period before receiving the all-important bite.

“My previous best chub from the river was one of 6lb 2oz caught back in January,” he said. “The swim in question is one which I used to fish for perch and barbel and I had a feeling it might hold a few big chub too. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve had four fish over 5lb and numerous ‘fours’ in my quest for Severn 7lb’er,” he added.
