Fishing at Sykehouse Fisheries, near Doncaster, Bob landed the fish using just two sections of pole.
‘It was incredible,’ said Bob, ‘the closer to the bank you fished, the bigger the roach! At times I was sitting at the back of the platform and only fishing a foot in front of it. Even so, the owner apologised because he thought it wasn’t fishing very well. Normally you can catch much bigger roach than this.’
Bob used the TD1 floats and pink hydro elastic. If you fancy giving it a go you’ll find Sykehouse Fisheries on Facebook.
