Robert and his new personal best chub of 7lb 14oz

A rising river carrying lots of debris didn’t put off Rob Brown who beat the conditions to bank a brace of quality chub, topped by a 7lb 14oz personal best.

The Nottingham-based angler was fishing a local stretch of the Trent with 3 Foot Twitch Redemption boilies when he took both chevins, along with four carp and a small barbel.

Fishing just two rod-lengths out in 8ft of water, the 33-year-old used PVA sticks in conjunction with his boilie hookbaits.
