44lb roach catch wins Messingham Sands match

Bites have been hard to come by at many fisheries but not at Messingham Sands where Lee Harrison took 44lb of roach to win the latest match.

The Maver rod drew on the North Day Ticket Lake at the Scunthorpe venue in the silverfish open event and used maggot on the short pole line to take samples to 1lb at regular intervals.

Grimsby’s Jamie Green was on the same water and secured second place with 31lb 5oz.
