Commercial produces shock huge roach hauls

A venue that is renowned for producing 100lb plus carp bags on a daily basis has shown a different side to it by throwing up huge nets of fin perfect roach.

The Midlands complex has become a popular haunt with anglers from all over the nation in recent years but a handful have dared to try and exploit the silverfish populations and have been rewarded with massive hauls of redfins to almost 2lb.

“The carp have been the number one target for a long time but that could soon change as these roach are in absolutely pristine condition and a bite a chuck can be taken from any peg from specimen sized roach,” explained one local angler.
