The River Wensum
The huge Wensum barbel
Just recently I have also experienced some great rudd fishing in the cambridgeshire fens catching many rudd to nearly 3lb. They are awesome looking fish and I hope to crack the 3lb barrier next summer.
Phil Spinks 5lb 9oz chub
I've just enjoyed a short evening session fishing for chub using a stinky new cheese paste I've just put together. I used some new Sonubaits ingredients I've not tried before, and it really did make a difference.
I included the potent Hemp & Cheesy Garlic liquid from Sonu's Barbel and Carp range in the paste mix, and didn't have to wait long for this River Wensum beauty to come along.
We had a Korum Product Development meeting earlier this week and I picked up some of the Sonubaits products to try after speaking with fellow Korum anglers, Gary Knowles and Ade Kiddell. The mix really stunk out the kitchen, but it was well worth it. This is a good fish from the stretch and caught when the river is still very low and slow moving.
I used my new Neoteric XS Quiver Rod in conjunction with a PXR Power 4000 reel to tempt the big chevin, using a light ledger setup to present my bait under overhanging bushes. A Korum prototype hook completed the setup.
