Autumn perch

They may be at their heaviest right at the very beginning of spring, but come the autumn, I can’t resist fishing for perch.

Dropping something wriggly, suspended beneath a bulbous float, into deep, slack water, preferably close to cover, is the only way to fish for them in my eyes – real boys own stuff.

I had a succession of stunning perch last week from both the river and a local pool. While the river is low, they make for a far more enthusiastic target than the chub and barbel.

  1. Hi Ben, that stillwater perch spot looks familiar, a surprising size though, don’t go to the right, first pegs near the bushes very close in may change that, tomorrow looks good weather in late afternoon
