I have always loved the perch, but only ever caught small ones until the 2nd May this year at Brickhill Farm Fishery, which I read about in IYCF magazine.
It's a lovely site ideal for a beginner like me as I am only into my second year of fishing.
My line screamed off as soon as it hit the water and how surprised and excited was I when I landed a 3lb 4oz stripey.
As you can see in the picture, it was not only a beautiful colour but in perfect condition.
Not only my pb but my favourite fish so far. Let's hope one day I will catch another beauty like this.
