River Chub

The Chub can be found in most of the UK's rivers and more recently in stillwaters where it is being stocked. It is a predatory fish and tends to live together in shoals, larger specimens tending to become solitary.

Nige,
My mail's been down, so just got to see your pics.

That's got to rank as pound for pound one of the best fish reported on the Forum - I'd rate that above a 10lb Barbel any day.

Well done mate, maybe a once in a lifetime fish ;)

Thanks Pete. My aim is always to transport the reader to the river bank through my writing.
Glad it worked for you :D
Hope you can get back out there soon and catch a big one.
