    Hi skimmers, the best way to catch the roach is to move about from swim to swim because the minnows will pester after a time. Feed a few, (4 or 5) maggotts each cast and be prepared to move after about 1/2 hour. I prefer red maggotts for this venue. also use the lightest stick float you can get away with but this method works best. Feeder fishing is ok but the minnows will devour your hookbait as soon as it hits bottom. you can get fed up after a while. Stick float tactics throws up minnows of course but also chub, roach, dace and grayling imbetween those pesky little nibblers. Be aware that keep nets will keep returned dace or roach from spooking the rest of the shoal so your catch rate will be higher with a keep net.
