Agonisingly close to target of a 7lb chub

Paul Elt came agonisingly close to catching a 7lb river chub on the float with this 6lb 14oz fish.
The St Neots-based Dynamite Baits-backed rod fed three pints of maggots flavoured with liquid Crave to score on a rig made with 4.2lb mainline, 3lb 6oz hooklink and size 16 hook.
“It was blowing a gale, and I was on my way back to the car when I found a short stretch offering some shelter,” said Paul.
“There I took seven chub, including my 6lb 14oz fish and a high five-pounder.”
