The glory of the Irwell!

Having fishing the river for a while now I believe I have unlocked some of its secrets. From a few selected swims I've managed to pluck out these beauties.

A nice chunky chub.

4lb 5oz Chub.

4lb Chub.

5lb 1oz Chub.

5lb 3oz brownie.

Nice canal pike from Piccadilly Basin.

I've never chased pike on the Irwell but my first outing rewarded me with this chunky jackie.
