Adam Fisher 2lb 5oz roach

ANGLING DREAMS boss Adam Fisher recently swapped the beauty of the Wye Valley for the equally scenic River Test and was rewarded with this fine roach of 2lb 5oz.

Fishing with Fisherman’s Blues, Nige Botherway, the pair shared a swim which required them to trot baits through a deep run for both roach and chub.

Adam told Angling Times: “There was a hard and hacking upstream wind, which made life tough even if it did help presentation.

“All the more reward to hook a fish like this.”

Adam fooled the fish on a single white maggot ran through the swim under a float, this tactic also took a dozen other redfins over a pound.
