Bread tempts 2lb roach

Iain McDonald demonstrated that traditional tactics still have their place in an angler’s armoury when he slipped the net under this 2lb roach.
The Kent angler tempted the prime specimen from his local stretch of river using a tactic known as stret pegging, which involves setting your rig well overdepth with a heavy shot close to the hook so that the float lays on the surface.
Iain introduced no loosefeed, relying on a breadflake hookbait to draw in the redfin.
