Dan Woolcott 3lb 1oz Roach

They say that confidence is key in fishing, and Kent ace Dan Woolcott’s must have been be sky-high after he landed this beautiful, a 3lb 1oz roach, just weeks after landing the grayling of a lifetime.

Targetting a southern pit, Dan presented a maggot feeder at 60 yards out over a bed of Dynamite Baits groundbait using an 8lb Kamasan Animal Mainline, down to a 5lb Acolyte Fluorocarbon hooklength tied to a size 14 Specimen Plus hook. The fish was the reward of a tough session, in which he added a second roach of 2lb 4oz.

Well done Dan!
