Grafham Water 4lb 12oz Perch

In a week of big perch being reported, Conner Rogerson didn’t disappoint with this 4lb 12oz fish from Grafham Water.

“I started off only catching small ‘wasps’ and trout, but with two hours left, I had a few casts by the famous water tower,” he told us. “I flicked a small shad right by the tower and let it sink 20ft. After a few flicks it was hit like a steam train, with line stripping from the reel. My legs went to jelly and panic mode hit, but I eventually guided it to the net. What a day.”

Well done Conner!
