Two targets in an hour

In the space of an hour Sam Bascombe landed two of his target fish from CEMEX Angling’s Roach Pit, with mirrors of 42lb 8oz and 39lb 12oz.

The Dorset-based plasterer targeted a deep silt spot among a patch of thick weed at 50yds range, and baited the feature with a mixture of CC Moore Odyssey XXX boilies and Betaine Ultramix pellets.

Sam presented his hookbaits on stiff-hinged rigs tied with 20lb ESP Stiff Rig Bristle Filament and 25lb Atomic Tackle Jel-E-Wyre hooklinks attached to size 4 ESP Mk 2 Stiff Rigger hooks
