DR MARK EVERARD proved he’s just as adept at catching roach out of stillwaters as much as his more favoured rivers with a stunning 14 fish catch in just two hours.

Each redfin went over 1 lb 14 oz including seven over 2 lb including a trio at 2 lb 2 oz in a brilliant catch just a week after we published Mark’s haul of four 2 lb roach in an one hour session before dawn on the Bristol Avon.

The fishery scientist said: ‘It takes a bit to get me to abandon my beloved rivers for stillwaters, but this is exactly what I did.’
