Monster perch on first cast drop shotting

The first cast of a short afternoon session on his local river proved the most decisive for Sam Edmonds when he banked this giant 4lb 1oz perch.

The England Lure Team member hooked the huge fish on his first put-in after setting up a drop shot rig with 0.12mm Berkley Nanofil mainline, 8lb Spiderwire Ultracast Fluorocarbon tied to a size 2 Owner Mosquito Drop Shot hook and Berkley Twitchtail Minnow lure. He followed up the capture later in the session with another fish weighing 3lb 15oz to cap a great month for the 20-year-old who also banked another 3lb 15oz specimen last week.
