NEILL Stephen is the holder of both the joint Bri­tish perch record and the chub record.

His gi­ant perch – weigh­ing 6lb 2oz - was caught from day-ticket carp lake Stream Val­ley Lakes, in Sus­sex, and fell to a float­fished raw prawn.

To en­tice the fish into his swim he low­ered in a ny­lon mesh bag con­tain­ing 100 chopped lob­worms and 0.5kg of crushed prawns.
