Seven roach over 2lb from Lochnaw Castle Loch

John Sucksmith enjoyed the ‘best roach fishing session of his life’ at the famous Lochnaw Castle Loch in Scotland.

The venue is widely regarded as one of the UK’s finest specimen roach waters and the experienced angler from Lincoln proved why with no less than seven fish over 2lb including a 2lb 15oz 8dr personal best.

Accuracy was the key to his success and he followed every cast of his groundbait feeder with the introduction of 10 boilies directly over the top. All of his fish fell to Dynamite Baits 10mm The Source boilies hair-rigged on a size 10 hook.

“This is the best roach fishing I’ve experienced in over 60-years of angling,” John told Angling Times.

“As soon as my feeder hit the water I’d fire 10 to 15 boilies into the ripple created by the rig and I’m convinced that keeping everything really tight made the difference.”
