Chub, Warks Avon.

Only a couple of spare hours in the whole of this week so I grabbed a rod, a net, a few bits and a tin of luncheon meat and headed for the river. The weather was pretty dire, windy and wet but I managed to catch a Chub and lose a Barbel.
At 3lb 6oz it wasn't the biggest I have ever caught but very welcome. The Barbel I lost managed to transfer the hook into weed which really should not be there at this time of year. We have certainly had some strange weather this year!


  1. A nice looking Chub there Joe,I have to agree regarding the weather,it has been a little odd really and the rivers are gasping for a large drop of rain to be fair,although when we will see some sufficient rainfall is anyones guess.

    Kind Regards

  2. Nice one joe in all the bad weather as well, And a good Chub for your efforts, Pity about the Barbel snagging you up on the great escape haha happens to us all Joe,
