Highbridge Fisheries in Norfolk has thrown up another of its giant roach, this 3lb 5oz beauty which fell to a carp angler.

Sean Jackson was fishing a shrimp flavoured 15mm ‘wafter’ bait and had just cast out after landing a double figure carp when the big redfin, thought to be one of the biggest caught anywhere in the UK this season, all but took the bait on the drop.

Sean said: “I had this roach in Bridgham corner not far out at all. It came just minutes after putting the rod back out from catching my first carp of the this session. I’ve noticed this year there’s been a lot of roach activity from that particular corner since early March they spawned in there too.”
