Cheese paste lures big chub

Martin Barnatt decided to fish for chub in the River Ivel near Sandy where he caught three chub to 3lbs trotting bread flake sown the stream. However, a late change of tactics to cheese paste enabled him to finish the day on a high when he banked a 5lb 5oz chub. Robert Livock returned to the river in the early part of the week to catch two more chub weighing 3lb 12oz and 4lbs both on ledgered bread flake. Later in the week, he fished with membership secretary Anthony Pogmore but they could only manage a couple of smallish chub under 3lbs each. News of a 7lb chub being caught from the Ivel near Sandy has come to light but no further details are to hand at this point in time.
