First session of the autumn hunting for big perch - though jacks and chub seemed to be occcupying their haunts from last year. All chub and the pike on lobs, most of the chublets were in th 12oz-1lb range - which is a good sign for future stocks. All perch on trotted maggot at the tail of the weir in bright sunshine!
