On a ‘social’ trip to an East Anglian gravel pit, James Champkin managed to not only catch up with a couple of old mates, but also take a scintillating haul of roach, landing fish of 3lb 10oz, 2lb 15oz, and 2lb 13oz.
His successful tactic was to use a 35g feeder, filled with maggots, alongside red maggot hookbaits presented on size 12 hooks and tied to fluorocarbon hooklinks. These were fished over hemp and mixed particles.
