Perkins – the new champ

Angling Times (UK) - - MATCH NEWS -

A BRIL­LIANT 40-620 of bream sealed the in­di­vid­ual Na­tional ti­tle for Ma­trix Dy­na­mite Trent­men’s Rob Perkins.

Drawn on B17 (per­ma­nent peg 8, Holme Marsh Weir), Rob landed 22 slabs to 6lb us­ing a 60g large cage feeder at 55 turns.

“I was cast­ing reg­u­larly to put down lots of bait and it took an hour to get a bite. Af­ter that I caught fish in spurts of twos and threes. There were loads of bream in the area, and they came in, mopped up the bait and wan­dered off again!

“I was be­hind the an­gler on peg 5 for most of the match, but caught and over­took him in the last hour. It’s ev­ery­body’s dream to win a Na­tional and this was def­i­nitely my day!” he said.

Rob fished a size 18 hook with half a den­drobena tipped with a mag­got as bait, pack­ing worm and caster into the feeder.
