Huge River Perch

Simon Brough dedicates a lot of time each season during the colder months targeting big perch on his local rivers and this year he has been rewarded for his efforts with a huge perch of 4lb 14oz.


Simon has been using a 10ft Drennan Puddle Chucker Carp Feeder for his perch fishing as it allows him to access tight spots along the river and carefully lower his bait into position.

“I like to use a light glass tip as they are very sensitive and allow me to see the most delicate of bites. At the rig end, I use a simple running leger with a 20g Oval Cage feeder and an 18-inch hooklength of 5lb Supplex Fluorocarbon tied to a size 10 Wide Gape Specialist hook.”
