Fan Chubby Tastic East Stoke Yin Yang

Cliff Glynn and Vic trotted off to the highly recommended (by Glynn) East Stoke Trent Stretch at 1PM.
Conditions looked perfect, colour in the water and the river was slightly up.
Cliff and Glynn tried piking initially, trying a few spots but nothing doing.
Glynn switched to luncheon meat and the magic cheese paste and didn't get a touch all night.
Vic was on Maggot and Worm had a Nice Perch and a 1lb eel, before dark. Not a touch After Dark.
Cliff Walked to the farthest peg under an overhanging tree, concentrating on trying to get a Chub PB on the board, fishing close in.
Feeding hemp and halibut pellet Cliff had a few good bites but couldnt hook a fish,with a single large hook and cheese paste wrapped around it. Cliff then switched to hair rigged 10mm Halibut wrapped in Glynn's most excellent cheese paste, leaving the hook exposed. That did the trick...the fish looked huge, Glynn was very very worried that it would beat his 5lb PB. It was a beauty a new PB for Cliff at 4lb-9oz .. Glynn was relieved.
The second rod went with this fish still in the landing net, thank goodness glynn turned up to bag the second Chub 3lb-12oz for Cliff and with a set of scales.
Amazing view of the stars later with loads of shooting stars. Great night for Cliff but the fish were few and far between for Glynn and Vic, we called it night at 11PM... Looks like we may be off for Grayling next.

    At least Glynn's killer cheesepaste worked for someone!!
