Adam Riches 4lb 14oz Perch

Having spent many hours perch fishing on his local Great Ouse, getting to grips with targeting the species on a huge midlands stillwater has been a challenge for Adam Riches, but his efforts paid off with this 4lb 14oz specimen.

It’s his joint PB and is a fish that continues his great run of recent form, having just landed a PB bream at 17lb 2oz. The perch fell to lure tactics and came shortly after starting the session, with it giving a great account of itself as it powered around under the boat. Adam noted that the fish was in excellent condition and left him grinning for the rest of the day.

Well done Adam!
