Itchen roach falls to a fly

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

AN­DREW Mus­sell­white tar­geted a pri­vate stretch of the River Itchen in Hamp­shire, where he scored with this pris­tine 2lb 4oz roach.

In low, clear con­di­tions he de­cided to stalk the venue’s redfins with a small home-tied nymph on fly tackle.

In other re­cent trips An­drew has proved he’s a dab hand at more con­ven­tional tac­tics for the species, hav­ing taken a 2lb 3oz roach on a free­lined piece of bread­flake.

An­drew has now caught three roach over 2lb from the Itchen.
