Photo of a large Roach found dead at the recent Danskine work party !

Shame as it was one hell of a roach!
Could be a surprise or two in there ? maybe even another potential Scottish record as there was another very large roach found dead a few years ago !!! :shock:

Hard to say as the photo does it no justice but I thought at least 3lb+
I'll measure that glove to try and give it some scale and compare to other roach.
It was seriously smelly though! :| :shock: :lol: :lol:

:lol: :lol: :lol: there's also some decent perch in there! I did a night last year and had about 5 takes on choddies during the night and each was a perch between 1 and 2lb! The initial runs were quite carpy too if I'm honest :roll: :lol:

thing is a dead fish can actually look much bigger than it was when it was alive, they can swell up something awful as they begin to decompose, should remain the same weight for a while though the only way to really tell would be to weigh it.
