Pristine 2lb 9oz Roach For Danny Taylor

A single maggot and a size 18 was the successful combination that Danny Taylor used to catch this superb 2lb 9oz roach from the Hampshire Avon.

Adopting classic stickfloat and maggot tactics, the New Milton, Hampshire-based specimen hunter targeted the main river and a sidestream during a day session on the southern waterway, and put together a fine mixed bag of roach, dace and chub.
