Big roach taken on white foam hookbaits!

What’s your favourite bait for roach? Maggots, casters or perhaps breadflake?

Well for matchman Andy Loble there is only one choice – small pieces of white foam!

Yes, you read that right, the southern specimen angler has hit upon a radical new approach to tackling the species, and last week proved his new rig was far from pie in the sky stuff when he landed a bag of big redfins to over 2lb from the River Itchen using the new method.

For full details of the catch and Andy’s great session, plus rig diagarms, see next Tuesday’s AT, on sale 2 August!
