PAIR OF FOURS MAKE A WIN­NING PERCH HAND

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

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.
