NOW this is a seriously impressive roach...


Noted roach venue Highbridge Fisheries in Norfolk produced another of its rare huge redfins with this 3 lb 14 oz PB monster.

It fell to Lee Pickard, and though he was actually targeting carp at the time the catch was a very welcome one.

Floor layer Lee, 48, from nearby Brockdis: said: “It wasn’t what I was after but still welcome.

“It came to a 15 mm boilie and was my only fish.”

Highbridge, which has done true roach to at least 4 lb 1 oz, is mostly fished on a four-rod carp syndicate but there is a coarse ticket allowing two rods.
