I was a bit too late!
ONE reason for my trip down to Essex was that the lake was rumoured to hold very big perch. As I’m after that fabled UK fourpounder, I thought this could be my chance.
Too late. It seems that the owner had the lake professionally netted, with perch to 5 lb 8 oz removed not long ago.
That’s the story of my perching life. You can guarantee that when a perch boom has just wound down, yours truly will make his entrance.
