ROACH TOPS MIXED BAG
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.
