Tipping The Scales At 3lb 1oz

Big perch tend to be a little thin on the ground in Yorkshire but it didn't stop Dave Tipping from landing this 3lb 1oz specimen.

The Harrogate-based taxi driver opted to fish a laid on lobworm on the North Yorkshire venue to tempt the specimen, plus another weighing 2lb 10oz together with a chub.

Dave fed his chosen swim with chopped dendrabaenas and casters through a baitdropper, topping it up after each fish.

His terminal tackle included a size 8 hook and bite indication was provided by a 1 Swan Drennan Loafer float.
