Been a late one again tonight. Started raining as I left my house and kept going on and off all night, but not too cold and little wind. Hooked my first Perch under a bridge I was using for cover. Bolted off then started tail dancing! Long story short I lost it, to make matters worse lost another two in the following hour. Each a little better in size than recent Perch but so lively and jumping like salmon.
Confidence knocked I carried on. All of a sudden I was in to a Perch and landed this one. No sign of Roach tonight, I carried on till nearly 10pm when I got a lovely 7-8oz Roach matching my previous best. Packed up around 10.30pm after I caught one more Roach, sated for the evening :)
