Upper Ouse

Paul is fishing on the Upper Great Ouse in Bedfordshire and meets up with Keith Eliot from the Angling Writers Asscociation. The main target today is Barbel but there are also good Chub, Bream and Tench in the weir pool they start fishing in. Paul starts by with a ledgered worm, bouncing it along the bottom in the current and kicks things off with a small Perch. He then joins another angler in a beautiful little pool who shows Paul how he's using a hair rig and then promptly manages a stunning 5lb Barbel. Paul rejoins Keith who has found a pod of large Chub residing in an overgrown swim. Keith's been dropping some pellet in to get them on the feed and Paul hooks up a slug to present to them. He freelines the slug towards the Chub and finally one grabs it and Paul lands a nice 3-4lber but with bigger fish around, they decide to give it a few mins rest and try again. Will Paul break the magical 5lb barrier for a Chub?
