Lochnaw Roach

Drennan’s Stewart Moss travelled up to Dumfries & Galloway in Scotland last week for a family holiday, and of course after all the usual daytime sightseeing and beach activities found time to do some fishing in the evenings with his very enthusiastic children.

Stew’s biggest roach of the trip at 2lb 5oz.

Staying and fishing at the wonderful Lochnaw Castle Fishery, they were lucky to catch a number of lovely roach, topped by Stew’s 2lb 5oz example. Sadly, a much bigger fish was lost near the net when it managed to throw the hook with one last roll – blame being hotly disputed between Dad on the rod and the children on the landing net…

Most of the fish were caught using Drennan 8mm Method Boilies in Pineapple Punch or Tutti Frutti flavour, fished on a short braided hooklength, hair-rigged to a size 16 Wide Gape spade end hook.
