Perch On The Acolyte Pole

Martin Bowler puts his Acolyte Carp pole to the test in this week’s Angling Times targeting perch on running water.


Martin shows just how effective a pole can be for perch when fishing tight to features such as bridges. Despite the huge drop shotting craze, Martin believes this needn’t be your automatic choice of approach.

“The use of a pole not only ensures pin-point accuracy but also allows you to impart movement into the bait by lifting and dropping the bait through the water column, hopefully inducing a take from a hungry perch.”
