CHUB are known for their wide tastes in food... and one angler has been proving the point.

After landing a specimen chub of 6 lb on a lure in the morning, Robbie Northman set out in the evening to fish the fly.

The 28-year-old, from Norwich, had walked a fair stretch of the Norfolk river.

Then he located a group of chub holding in an overgrown section.

And following a few false casts, he delivered a slow sinking Montana nymph and tempted the 6 lb 5 oz chevin.

It’s a PB on the fly for the bar manager and Savage Gear consultant.

Robbie has now caught a 6 lb-plus specimen chub on most tactics – fly, lure, livebait and conventional baits.
