Two big roach from tiny river

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

SPEC­I­MEN fish of­ten oc­cupy the small­est water­ways, as proved when Mike Townsend banked this im­pres­sive pair of roach.

The fish – weigh­ing 2lb 2oz and 1lb 6oz – were caught on the float when the spe­cial­ist from Don­caster, South Yorks, fished a tiny lo­cal river.

They were backed up by 40 roach over 1lb and all were all taken on a 2lb main­line, a 0.08mm hook­link and a size 20 hook baited with a sin­gle caster.
