Frank Partington 2lb 10oz Roach

After landing two nice perch Frank Partington was ‘over the moon’ when he realised he was connected to this stunning 2lb 10oz roach.

The fish was caught from a Leigh and District AA water, and is a new personal best for Frank, who fished a groundbait feeder with a bunch of maggots on the hook. Talking about his catch, Frank told us: “We don’t get a lot of big roach in this water, so it was a big surprise!”
