Gwyn Davies 3lb Roach

A visit to the Hampshire Avon paid off in style for Gwyn Davies, who tempted this roach of 3lb exactly.

The specimen was tamed on a long 17ft rod, which aided control of Gwyn’s beefy 8g Avon float.His hookbait was a bunch of maggots on a size 14 hook, which, rather than fishing over matching feed, he instead presented over liquidised bread mixed with hempseed, which he fed regularly in small balls.

Well done Gwyn!
