Venue holding roach to 3lb 8oz opened!

A stillwater that experts claim could be home to potential record fish is set to open to coarse anglers for the first time in it’s history.

The huge venue has only been fished by a handful of game fishermen in the past but while chasing the vast shoals of trout they have accidentally landed roach to 3lb 8oz and perch nudging the 5lb mark.

Fully aware the venue could hold even bigger monsters, managers have now decided to allow coarse anglers access in a bid to reveal the true potential.
