Angling Times (UK) - - TIPS & TACTICS -

I MEN­TIONED my 2lb 2oz roach from the River Wye last week. Well, here it is, caught on the sec­ond day of the Here­ford An­gling Fes­ti­val.

The river had come up 3ft from the pre­vi­ous day and was car­ry­ing a lot of colour in the form of sed­i­ment. Run­ning line gear was never go­ing to work un­der these con­di­tions, so I elected to use a 10g flat float with lob­worms for bait.

A small piece of lob­worm tail on a size 12 hook brought me five de­cent roach, with this beauty being the pick of the bunch!
