Switch to bread brings two big roach from Kent

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

A SWITCH from mag­got to bread­flake on the hook re­sulted in the bite Iain Mc­Don­ald had been wait­ing for – from this 2lb 10oz roach.

The Kent an­gler was trot­ting his lo­cal stretch of river in a swim where he had spot­ted some big roach.

How­ever, after be­ing plagued by dozens of small perch he de­cided to mould a piece of the white stuff around his size 16 hook in the hope of hook­ing a big­ger prize.

The tac­tic worked a treat, and he was soon net­ting a 1lb 10oz redfin which he then fol­lowed up with the even big­ger spec­i­men.
