Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

TAR­GET­ING over­hang­ing veg­e­ta­tion on his local sec­tion of canal worked a treat for Matthew Per­ring when he net­ted this 3lb 3oz perch.

The Ban­bury based, Marukyu and Deeper spon­sored an­gler roved a rel­a­tively un­der-fished sec­tion of the Ox­ford Canal us­ing white coloured, three inch Eco­gear Bug Ant lures.

In just a few hours he had net­ted a to­tal of six perch and one zan­der in­clud­ing a 2lb 6oz stripey. All the fish were caught us­ing a 3-12gram Tronix Rock­fish Pro jig rod with 10lb braided main­line and 8lb Berkley flouro­car­bon hook­link and a size two, five gram jig head.
