The scene was set for 4 hours of frantic fishing after the Rutilus-Rutilus Dogius Roachius , expectancy is in the air , how will it fish ?
After setting up we pre-baited for 5 minutes and bites up ready to Roach and Roll !

Patrik has been away from fishing for some 20 years and after a few matches is starting to get back into the swing of things . Peg A4 13300.
Johan the Ax-man …… he caught well all match ….PegA3 19800.
He caught quite a lot more but unfortunately found a hole in his net where the fish were escaping.
After match speech and a few trusty words from the Trosa boys.
Hasse winner of B section
Roger winner of A section
Johan 2nd in A section
What a great day and its not really peaked yet as the weight for 4 hours fishing can get into the 30/40's especially if the Ide show.
There was an incredible 251,400 kilos of fish caught for an average of 19,340 kilos per man
That is a staggering 553,4 lbs of Roach for an average of 42.5 lb per man
Looking at the species caught is looked to be 90% Roach with 10% Ide , Perch , Bjorkna and Skimmer.
BIG THANKS TO THE TROSA BOYS FOR ORGANISING A GREAT EVENT . FROM NOW TILL IT FREEZES OVER THE FISHING WILL CONTINUE.
TROSA HEAVEN !
