Autumn is here

Recommended Posts

Great picture Rich, really shouts autumn. I was on the K&A Canal this afternoon with a float rod, lobs and absolutely perfect conditions but even fishing into dark produced just two small perch. On the Thames tomorrow after chub with bread.

It's never a 'six', let's put it back

Some more from today:







The third fish has those sores that near all bigger Thames perch have. I just don't know what hey are but after 20 years of Thames perching I've learnt not to worry.

Was out again today for a hour or so. I hit the jackpot and got a really decent perch amongst a load of ~1lbers:




Problem is I forgot my scales!!!


Anyone want to guess the weight? The fish further up was 2ln 2oz and ~38cm long. This fish was ~45cm long and much much deeper, and as you can see really thick across the back:

Wow mate 45 cm - almost 18 inches must surely put it easily into the 3 to 3 1/2 lb bracket & possibly a bit more IMO.

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John
