  • The BEST setup for roach

    Hi i was bumping off alot of roach today on double 6 elastic (its the only top kit i have elasticated yet) With a size 18 b911 with double maggot.



    I just want to know what the best setup is for roach whether fishing up in the water or on the bottom.

    Anything appreciated,

    Connor

        Describe the venue connor as roach fishing varies from water to water. Don't however put things like " there's the chance of the odd 16lb carp" as this just makes the original question pretty pointless.
        I've used the middy before and it's a good all round silvers elastic.
        For small roach or fishing long in the wind do as FORDY-1 says and use a 3-4
        Speed fishing to hand at short range like Barnsley do on the canals might see you need a 6-8 depending on stamp of fish which in turn may need a slightly stronger hook as you're looking to swing everything.
        There's too many variables to roach fishing to give a short answer.
        More info needed.

          Erm as i said its packed with roach and small crucians these are what i will be targeting with single or double maggot so hopefully there wont be any decent carp there.
          I dont know much about the tench in the lake but i had a 1lb13oz out of there the other day so that would give me a good run for my money.
          I wont be speed fishing as im not a matchman yet

              Connor, A good set up is to use a mix of double and single.

              Choose an elastic that is intended for the smaller fish, say a No4. When you elasticate the top kit, instead of tying the end of the elastic straight to the winder bung, make a large loop, but this loop must be the correct length so that when at full stretch the knot you used to form it mustn't come out of the bush.

              This way you have a length of single 4 for the silvers, with a section of double 4 behind it to help if anything bigger comes along. Remember though, that if say you are fishing with 0.09mm hooklength, it is ultimately relying on double 4 if anything bigger comes along.

              I used this setup myself this summer for paste, but with solid 14's, but only where there was a bit more room in the swim.

                Yeah luke i do that with my top kits when i was using 14.
                Its a good thing to do incase you catch a nicer fish.
                Should i use a pulla bung with the light laccy?

                  Latex is just a non-coloured elastic and you'll be better off using the middy or preston elastic as it's far more consistent and reliable.
                  Hydro is the last elastic i'd choose for roach unless they average a pound each which is highly unlikely.
                  Luke's loop should really be standard fare when using lighter elastics and I twizzle the loop before tying it off.
                  Forget pulla bungs they are for carping and not what the question was about.

                    I seen in will raisons videos that he uses a solid 6 elastic for roach as the blue hydro is still a bit heavy for them

                          If you're just catching roach, i'd go for the 4-6... if there's a chance of bigger fish go for the 6-8 set quite soft.

                            Team Daiwa solid number 5 looks ideal and there are a few crucians in there too and the odd decent carp but i will fish single (dead)/Red maggot on the hook so will hopefully avoid those
