Rudd campaign pays off with 2lb 13oz fish

Specimen angler Matt Rand has spent the early part of the season targeting big rudd - and he once again grabbed the rewards with this 2lb 13oz fish from a Fenland river.

After locating a shoal of large fish, the Shimano Normark UK media manager presented a floatfished piece of crust in open water.

He had to wait until just before dusk for the all-important bite, though, and he capped off the short session with a second fish over the 2lb-barrier which tipped the scales at 2lb 10oz.
