7lb 1oz chub from Derbyshire Derwent

The Derbyshire Derwent has built up a reputation for its big barbel but Dan Dakin proved it has large examples of other species when he netted this 7lb 1oz chub.

Wetting a line in a noted hotspot during darkness, the Derby-based angler shunned more traditional chub baits such as pellets and maggots in favour of a large piece of garlic Spam.

His hookbait was taken within seconds of hitting the water and after a spirited fight he netted his new personal best for the species.
