Ma­jes­tic river preda­tors

Improve Your Coarse Fishing (UK) - - Magic Moment - PHO­TOG­RA­PHER: Lloyd Rogers, IYCF

Perch are ar­guably the most strik­ing of the UK’s coarse fish species. With their ag­gres­sive spiked dor­sal fins, olive flanks dec­o­rated with black stripes and crim­son pec­toral fins they ooze at­ti­tude. And there are no finer ex­am­ples than those found in run­ning water. The clearer con­di­tions re­sult in their colours be­ing more pro­nounced than their com­mer­cial fish­ery coun­ter­parts. If you want to learn more about catch­ing run­ning-water perch turn to Mark Perkins’ fea­ture on page 24.
