ROACH TOPS MIXED BAG

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

THERE are few more en­joy­able meth­ods of catch­ing fish than by trot­ting a stick float down a river, as Adam Fisher did to bank this fine roach last week.

A day trip to the River Itchen proved fruit­ful for the Angling Dreams boss, who caught bream, chub and sea trout as well as the im­mac­u­late 1lb 10oz roach.

“I knew it was a good fish so un­til I got it to the sur­face, my heart was in my mouth. Once it was fi­nally in the net I was so re­lieved,” said Adam, from Here­ford­shire.

He took the roach on a sin­gle red mag­got, mounted on a size 18 Dren­nan Carp Mag­got hook at­tached to 3lb line.

Adam trot­ted mag­gots for his fine Itchen roach.
