PAIR OF FOURS MAKE A WINNING PERCH HAND
PERCH fishing sessions don’t get much better than the one Ben Hinton enjoyed on the River Thames.
He landed no fewer than a dozen 2lb-plus fish topped by this specimen of 4lb 6oz.
Fishing an unnamed stretch of the waterway, the Gardner Tacklesponsored angler’s dream haul featured three 3lb stripeys as well as another of 4lb 1oz in what he called ‘by far the most crazy three hours’ fishing I’ve ever had’.
Ben tempted all his perch on trotting tactics with small livebaits under a bobber float. He used 5lb Gardner fluorocarbon mainline and a size 6 Gardner wide gape Talon Tip hook.
