Never having lived and been able to fish in good big chub areas my best chub is a mere 4lb6ozs caught acidently whilst barbel fishing. Like Grayling a fish I havnt caught enough of yet to be bored by! :)
And thats my "non indicative opinion"!

Just re read my last post and it comes across a bit blase! Ut isnt meant like that.What I suppose I mean is that despite having caught a lot of grayling,barbel and chub over the years because I dont/cant fish for them every day like I can pike,carp,bream,tench etc they stay that little bit special.I am sure the same must apply to others who have plenty of one species on their door step but have to travel for others,regardless of species/sizes. :)
And thats my "non indicative opinion"!
