Every now and then a fat chub shoal move in on the River Hodder. Many fly anglers used to decry the chub yet the take from a large specimen on light gear and small dry fly can be spectacular. Apologies for the confusion in the middle of this clip but I had the fly rod in one hand and the camera in the other and I had to also net the fish too, so the camera had to swing in its strap whilst I grassed the fish. This chub took a tiny pale watery imitation. I saw the fish cast to it and it turned a tight semi circle then hit the fly. There is nothing wrong with catching chub on fly and its great fun. Mr Crabtree would have approved for sure.
