Bread tempts 7lb chub best from River Wensum

Getting off the beaten track saw Paul Scott land this new pb chub of 7lb 1oz from the River Wensum.

Despite heavy rain and windy conditions, the 38-year-old Norwich-based angler was keen to get on the bank and targeted an un-fished stretch of the waterway which he suspected might hold a few big fish. Using bread flake on a size 6 Drennan Super Specialist hook and feeding liquidised bread in a small feeder, Paul cast his hookbait under an overhanging bush. “I decided to visit two swims where I had recently caught a couple of 5lbers including my previous best of 5lb 10oz but didn't have a knock,” he said. “I was soaking wet so I upped sticks and decided to walk further down to an un-fished spot that looked really fishy and had plenty of cover and I caught the fish on my first cast.”
