Widespread and abundant, it is little wonder that Roach is one of the angler's favorite fish. Happy to take a variety of baits, they are a mainstay for the occasional or match angler alike. Being fairly tolerant to pollutants, Roach are to be found widely distributed throughout the UK. Although a fish of 2 lbs is considered a specimen, the British Record stands at over 4 lbs. Today we visit Pisces Fishery on the Cambridge/Norfolk border to witness a session with the four times World Coarse Fishing Champion Bob Nudd MBE. Bob explains the methods, baits and rigs that he uses and passes on some of the wealth of knowledge and experience that comes only from an expert of his stature. Amongst the many tips when fishing for Roach, Bob stresses the importance of getting your baits past the Rudd in the higher water and in his entertaining and enlightening manner shows you how easily this can be achieved.
Watch, listen and learn from a master and perhaps this DVD will help you to improve your bags when fishing for the resilient Roach.
