6lb chub brace was well worth the wait

Years of effort to land a 6lb-plus chub ended spectacularly for Rob Thompson when he landed a brace over the barrier from a Bedfordshire river.
The Korum-backed star had tried in vain to achieve his goal on his local Derbyshire Derwent, but eventually conceded defeat and headed further south in his quest.
Link legering cheese paste coated in Sonubaits Cheese and Garlic Flavour Shaker, he was soon into a brace weighing 4lb 4oz and 5lb 5oz.
But the best was yet to come, with fish of 6lb 5oz and 6lb 6oz showing up in quick succession.
