Shorter walk rewarded with a 4.5lb chub

Morning All,
After a hard week at work and an early finish friday. I headed down to my local river in search of something alittle bigger than my 5.05 lb chub i had last week. River was low and slow but found what looked like a deep area on inside bend of river. Spicy sausage coated meat was the main bait and cage feeder filled with crushed krill bolilies and bread. After 20 mins. The tip craned round and i pulled into a hard and heavy fish. When i slipped the net under i must say it looked bigger than last weeks chub. But after a quick weight in it was just 4.5lb. A cracking fish all the same. Only fish that afternoon but was still chuffed to bits. 😁
