Town centre chub are a pair of personal bests

Robbie Northman proved that you don’t have to fish quiet, secluded spots to catch the biggest fish when he slipped the net under this 6lb 2oz chub.

Fishing the River Wensum in Norwich town centre, he cast a slug hookbait towards a small bush growing from concrete on the popular wall and it was soon taken by the new personal best.

He beat the specimen with 8lb mainline and a size 6 hook, while friend Jordan Lee Mortlock also got in on the action when he also broke his pb with a chub of 4lb 10oz.
