Chub on the centrepin

I had a nice trip to the river this morning. Conditions were low and I was fishing during the day, so wading, centrepin and casters were the order of the day. I had a nice mixed bag of roach, face, grayling and topped off with this decent chub which put a nice bend into the acolyte.

Tactics involved using a drennan acolyte plus (14ft), centrepin loaded with 6lb supplex (there's always the chance of hooking a barbel in this stretch), and 3 pints of maggots / caster. I loose fed a dozen or so samples before and during each trot, which was easy enough as I was stood in the middle of the river dropping it by my feet.

I'm never a fan of fishing the same way time after time, so it was a nice change from the norm
