Carper bags monster roach!

Sean Flynn got a silver surprise on a recent carp fishing trip at a secret Norfolk lake, where he landed this giant 3lb 4oz roach.

“I was fishing over 4kg of maize and hemp on the edge of a small feature, and the roach took a 16mm boilie fished on a spinner rig and size 4 hook," he told us.

“The fight was short and aggressive, and after feeling a familiar ‘knock’ as I reeled in, I realised I was connected to a roach, and a good one too!

"I’ve always wanted to catch a two-pounder, but nothing could have prepared me for holding such a rare and beautiful specimen of over 3lb.”
