Huge river roach on red mag­got

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

A SIN­GLE red mag­got fished un­der a stick float was too much for this 2lb 3oz roach to re­sist.

The pris­tine fish was banked by Mark Pil­ley when he tar­geted a stretch of a south­ern river.

It was get­ting to­wards the end of a ses­sion that had al­ready pro­duced sev­eral chub and dace when the tip of his float dis­ap­peared and his eighth river roach over the mag­i­cal 2lb mark was soon in the net.

He used a Dren­nan stick float, 3lb main­line and a size 18 hook.
