Big Thames roach a true master­piece

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

PRO­FES­SIONAL artist Robin Wool­nough counts this 2lb 4oz roach from a Thames trib­u­tary as a real master­piece.

Leaves on the sur­face made trot­ting a float dif­fi­cult, but he over­came the prob­lem to take a num­ber of fish over the 1lb mark on a sin­gle mag­got hook­bait be­fore the big­gest came along.

Robin’s rig com­prised 3lb 2oz Drennan Float­fish main­line to a 2lb 6oz hook­length and a size 18 Ka­masan B510 hook.
