A JOY TO (BE)HOLD…

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

CATCH­ING big fish is all about be­ing able to adapt, and Mar­cus Joy did just that when a bar­bel fish­ing ses­sion pro­duced this 3lb 12oz perch.

He spot­ted the preda­tor dur­ing a visit to a lo­cal river, so he dashed back to his car and ex­changed his bar­bel fish­ing gear for a spin­ning out­fit.

It was an in­spired de­ci­sion by the Lone An­gler Team mem­ber. from Gains­bor­ough, Lincs, as he re­turned to the wa­ter and the new per­sonal best took his small rub­ber lure on the sec­ond cast.

“I’m go­ing to keep the spin­ning rod in the boot for the rest of the sea­son, but I doubt I’ll beat my new pb for quite a while,” he said.
