Area switch brings ‘best’ chub

Lure angler Kevin Cox had a group of match anglers to thank after he slipped the net under a huge haul of perch to 2lb 7oz, along with a monster 6lb 10oz chub.
The Swindon angler had originally planned to fish a new stretch of the upper Thames, but when he found a match taking place he headed elsewhere.
It proved to be a masterstroke for Kevin when he proceeded to land 15 perch along with his new personal best chub in a four-hour session. All the fish were taken on a 2ins easy shiner lure, mounted on a 2g jig head.
