Huge perch high­light of a won­der week

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

This 4lb 6oz 8dr perch topped an amaz­ing week for Nigel Ken­nard.

His new best from the River Lea in Hert­ford­shire topped a list of fish, in­clud­ing a 6lb 5oz chub and an 11lb bar­bel from the idyl­lic Hamp­shire Avon, plus an­other pb – a 3lb 11oz 8dr cru­cian.

“I be­gan on the Avon, where the big chub was backed up with three five-pounders, all on boilies,” Nigel said. “I then drove to a lake in Sur­rey where I beat my cru­cian pb on the first day.”

Adding six oth­ers over 3lb, he then turned his at­ten­tions to the River Lea perch where stripeys of 2lb 8oz and 2lb 1oz backed up his four-pounder, all caught on a link leger rig baited with a lob­worm.
