Thank you to 17-year old George Basham from Essex for sending this photo of a 6lb 10oz Chub caught trotting one of our Alloy Stick Floats!
George used a Lobworm hookbait after loosefeeding chopped worms, liquidised bread and red maggots. “My new personal best chub — very happy to catch such an amazing creature!” explained George

Famous Norfolk specialist angler, author and artist Chris Turnbull with a 3lb 4oz Perch.
Whilst visiting family in the South, Chris and his brother Malcolm joined Tony King and Lee Chatfield on some trips to a Sussex commercial fishery.
The fishing proved more difficult than anticipated, with the Perch largely refusing to play ball! However, on the first visit Chris managed an encouraging 2lb 9oz fish, followed the next day by a 2lb 6oz, and Malcolm taking a brace of ‘threes’ at 3lb and 3lb 4oz.
A few days later the lads returned in bright sunshine, and after a few modest Perch, Chris saw his Drennan Loafer float bury, and this 3lb 4oz specimen was the result!
Tackle used include two 12 ft Drennan Series 7 Avon rods, rigged up with 4 Swan Drenna Loafter floats, on 5 lb bs Specimen Plus mainlines tied to 5lb Supplex hook links to size 4 Kamasan Wide Gape Specialist hooks baited with King Prawns and Red Maggots.
The Drennan Loafer float is a long established Perch anglers favourite! Click here for full details.
Gary Newman with a netful of Roach (in one of the new Speedex landing nets) from Lizard Lakes in West London.
With all his local rivers in severe flood, Gary visited the complex in company with Drennan’s Mike Davidson in order to fish for Roach. Using a mixture of Pole and Waggler tactics, both lads managed good bags of fish, although nothing huge was caught – for an enjoyable day. Gary wrote an interesting full account of the trip and their tactics in his Angling Adventures column in Anglers Mail last week.
The new Drennan Speedex Landing nets were designed to make the netting process fast and easy – ideal for commercial fisheries! For full details click here.
