Red Tag Key To Perch Catch

JUST a week after banking a 3lb 6oz perch, Rob Thompson returned to the same undisclosed Leicestershire venue to take a cracking quartet of big stripeys scaling 3lb 11oz, 3lb 5oz, 3lb 5oz and 3lb 2oz.


The Shepshed, Leics-based rod put his success down to the red tag of wool he added to the trebles of his small Mepps spinner.


Fishing 6lb line, Rob, a member of the Soar Valley Specialist Group, has only just started fishing the water and thinks it has the potential to throw up some even bigger perch.
