Alan Scotthorne versus Pike!

This exceptional bit of photography by Ben Fisk of the Angling Times shows the dramatic moment when five-times world champion Alan Scotthorne saw a Pike try to grab one of his ‘netter’ roach on Stainforth & Keadby Canal – as featured in last week’s issue!

The very informative article explained Alan’s approach to fishing hemp for roach on the canal, for example the clever way he lays the rig in when introducing it to the swim – really interesting and useful stuff!  You can follow Alan’s regular in-depth features and columns in Angling Times, which is out every Tuesday.

Check out how Alan’s baitwaiter is positioned perfectly to hand (complete with Team England Matchcaty and cup of tea!).  For further details on the Drennan Baitwaiter & Bait box systems, click here.
