Jamie’s Pair of Specimen Ouse Perch

Northampton’s Jamie Cartwright with one of two 4lb plus specimen river Perch taken during the final weekend of the river season.


Fishing the famous River Great Ouse with some mates, Jamie ended a terrific year personally by bagging first a 4lb 6oz example, then the next day a different specimen of 4lb 5oz – as well numerous 2lb and 3lb back up fish! Jamie tells us he used a Series 7 Specialist Avon Quiver 12ft 1¼lb rod fitted with a 1½oz Slow Taper Glass tip and FD 3000 reel to present Lobworms on a simple link ledger rig.
