River rudd on worms

These are two of the three rudd over 2lb caught by Phil Tayor on the stick float and worms.
He broke his personal best for the species three times when he netted specimens of 2lb, 2lb 5oz and 2lb 11oz when he paid a visit to his local river in Lincolnshire.
All three fish fell to dendrobaena hookbaits in conjunction with 4lb Drennan Double Strength line and a size 14 Korum hook. Phil loosefed the swim with red maggots.
“I had the biggest fish on my very first cast, which is incredible. I’ve caught rudd from this river before, but nothing of this size,” said Phil.
