MARTIN BOWLER: Gi­ant Perch Pair

Angling Times (UK) - - 50 GREATEST CATCHES -

23

A PERCH of 5lb is the fish of dreams for pretty much ev­ery an­gler, so imag­ine Martin Bowler’s de­light when he landed one in front of the tele­vi­sion cam­eras.

Martin sent jaws drop­ping when he banked a mon­ster 5lb 4oz spec­i­men dur­ing film­ing for his DVD Catch­ing the Im­pos­si­ble on the River Great Ouse near Buck­ing­ham.

Pole fish­ing a whole den­drobaena worm un­der a flat float to­wards a far bank over­hang­ing bush, Martin hooked the fish in front of cam­era­man Hugh MIles and if that wasn’t enough, added an­other huge 4lb-plus perch just for good mea­sure!
