Brian Hooper landed this superb PB 2lb 9oz Arun roach from our stretch at Watersfield during a memorable night session.
Doubling his previous best the specimen took a 12mm boilie fished in conjuction with a groundbait feeder. The fish was super healthy, and bolted back into the depths when Brian released it.

Having only succeeded in catching a sea trout during a recent session fishing for Chub at Shopham Ian Mintram had quite a surprise when he hooked into this superb 15lb Barbel. The specimen put up a terrific fight on Ian’s chub gear.
