TINY river produces BIG roach

SMALL tributaries and backwaters can offer great winter sport, as Alan Muller found when he landed this 2lb 11oz redfin from the diminutive River Bourne.

This waterway is a tributary of the River Thames and has been in great form for roach this season. Alan used maggot feeder tactics, with two grubs fished on a size 16 hook presented over the top of an area he’d fed previously with a small baitdropper.

In addition to the two-pounder, Alan landed other big roach of 1lb 8oz, 1lb 10oz, as well as half a dozen more over
the 1lb mark.
