2lb roach milestone

Danny Taylor achieved his ambition to catch a roach over the 2lb mark with this impressive specimen.
To make it even more special, he banked the 2lb 1oz fish from a stillwater in the North West, where such a specimen is extremely rare, when he feederfished maggots on a helicopter-style rig.
They were tactics that also saw him net roach weighing 1lb 13oz and 1lb 11oz.
“My personal best for the species stood at 1lb 15 oz for a long time, so this is a milestone for me,” he said.
