Perch haul is topped by a 3lb 9oz stripey

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

MORE than 100 perch came to the net dur­ing Wayne Fletcher’s lat­est ses­sion, and this 3lb 9oz spec­i­men was the pick of the bunch.

The Lon­don-based an­gler set his stall out on a river in Es­sex, where he made the most of the favourable con­di­tions from the off.

Three perch over 2lb fell in quick suc­ces­sion to his two-inch shad lure.

But Wayne was sav­ing the best of the four-fish haul till last.

The three-pounder fell a mere 6oz short of break­ing the Eng­land Lure Squad team mem­ber’s per­sonal best.

“I was de­lighted to round off the ses­sion in such fine style,” he said.
