Back in 2011, Simon Ashton experienced a once in a lifetime perch session at Blenheim Palace.

"I’ve fished a lot of beautiful still waters in my time, but if I had to choose just place it would have to be Blenheim Palace. On this particular year, I chose to fish in early autumn while It was still warm and the perch would hopefully be actively feeding.

"Blenheim lake is covered in features ranging from overhanging trees, weed beds, a boathouse and of course, the grand bridge. All these spots had produced big perch for me in the past but I decided to row my punt 300 yards from the boathouse and drop anchor about three-rod lengths away from a large dead sycamore tree. Tactics would be to spray red maggots and fish lobworms with a slider float setup.

"We literally had a fish every put in that day. I landed countless big perch over 2lb that day, with my best going 4lb 5oz along with a 4lb 3oz stripey at last knockings right outside the boathouse."

Julie Abbott's recently fished a match on the River Ancholme for the first time, drawing on the 'Cakemills' section.

She began the match starting at 13m in 8ft of water and with the only fish present being ruffe a change was in order.

"Match organiser Mick Storey suggested I tried on the feeder as the river had been out of sorts for several weeks. So I laid down a bed of bait three-quarters of the way across, using a 6 hole cage feeder as I wanted to stop any fish that came along long enough for me to catch them.

"I opted to fish a size 14 B560 to 0.14 Supplex with half a worm as the fish run quite big in this venue. I soon caught what turned out to be a personal best perch, which later weighed 3lb exactly. Smaller perch followed at intervals and then I landed a bream estimated at 5lb, but on close inspection at the end of the match, it was thought to be closer to 7lb.

"The flow increased slightly during the match and I had a few issues with weed coming down, but I still managed another bite which resulted in a tench about 4lb.

"Much to my surprise, I weighed in 17lb 15oz and with the 'Letters' section fishing poorly, it was enough for 2nd in the match."

At this time of the year when rivers and especially stillwaters lose all of their colour, the use of fluorocarbon hooklinks can make a huge difference.

Weather conditions once again made the fishing match something of an endurance test for the competitors in the second round of the Messingham Sands Silverfish Spring League which was fished on Saturday on Tripp Lake.
