“LIGHTNING DID STRIKE TWICE!”
Robert Croft – 3lb 14oz roach
“A FEW days after landing a 3lb 5oz roach, I returned to my syndicate lake and fished the same swim, again using a simple maggot helicopter rig.
“Thinking that lightning wouldn’t strike twice, I was amazed when the indicator again dropped two inches. I was expecting a perch to surface… not the biggest roach I’d ever seen!
“A passing carp angler said, ‘that’s a 4lb roach’, but he was slightly wrong – the scales settled on 3lb 14oz. I was speechless. I had smashed my PB twice in a matter of days and suddenly all the blanks were forgotten.”
