Lower Bann produces more 100lb+ roach bags

Northern Ireland’s Lower Bann continued its recent run of breath-taking form when it threw up this 115lb roach catch to Derek Buckley.

The venue regular decided to visit the New Forest stretch of the waterway at Portglenone and was rewarded with chunky redfins every chuck after he employed simple pole to hand with maggot tactics.

Just days later the latest round of the East Belfast CAC Winter League was held with the 22 man field sharing over 1,000lb of roach between them.

Leading the way on the day was Gary Cummings who took 117lb, while Dougie Brown netted the runners up spot with 104lb 8oz.
