Alan Murphy’s Irish Roach/Bream Hybrid

This handsome 3lb 1oz Roach/Bream hybrid was caught by Alan Murphy, aged 20, who lives near Dublin in the Republic of Ireland, using a Drennan Glow Tip Antenna float.

Alan used a Series 7 Tench & Specimen Float 13ft rod to present his float, and although on the day the Tench were not obliging, he managed a nice mixed bag of Roach, Roach/Rudd and Roach/Bream hybrids.

A joy to use the Tench & Specimen Float rod Tench fishing on a lovely sunny morning!” Alan told us.
