WIN­TER roach fish­ing has kicked off at Sion Farm and 20lb-25lb weights of redfins are al­ready start­ing to show on the Main Lake.

An­glers here in the past have recorded nets to 30lb, mainly roach to 2lb and the odd bream.

As with most com­mer­cial roach fish­ing, it’s best to keep it sim­ple. On pole or wag­gler, feed a 6m line with cast­ers and one fur­ther out with mi­cro pel­lets. Start on the near line with a light strun­gout rig set at dead depth and a caster on the hook, and keep the feed go­ing in.

Ev­ery so of­ten try the pel­let line with a 4mm ex­pander for bream to 4lb, but don’t for­get to keep feed­ing your near line.

If bites dry up, try adding an­other sec­tion and fish­ing slightly fur­ther out. To catch quickly, a whip is a good op­tion and is a fun way of sack­ing up on Sion’s roach.

Carp be­tween 8lb and 20lb have also been fea­tur­ing on this lake to bomb and feeder tac­tics from pegs that can reach the is­land. They’ve shown no sign of slow­ing down in the cold, with fish into dou­ble fig­ures taken on boilie and corn hook­baits.
