'Brook' Chub

Short and sweet this one. I haven't been to the Warwickshire Avon 'Brook' for a few weeks now and it's changed character completely. The stingers are starting to blacken and die and that means more swims will become available.

I wanted to catch a Chub or two so a map inline feeder was filled with liquidised bread and hookbait was a big lump of smelly cheese paste.

I had a Chub from every swim but one so that made 10 Chub in 3 hours, and I even managed 2 from under this raft just downstream of the weir.

The biggest went 3lb 14oz and the last one 2lb 11oz came from the rancid sheep swim that Daniel Everitt knows well.

An enjoyable morning indeed and not another angler in sight. It's quiet too so made a change from the Arrow stretch I fish. A 6lber will come from here over the winter, no doubt about that.
