Nine 2lb 45 minutes

Chris Hammond landed this impressive haul of perch that featured no less than nine fish all over the 2lb mark in just 45 minutes.

The Newmarket, Suffolk-based angler has recently had a lot of success with big rudd, but this time he turned his attentions to predators and float-fished small gudgeon at a river in Cambridgeshire to take his impressive catch.

Not only did he enjoy an early morning session to remember, but he also had the privilege of meeting award winning angling film maker and photographer Hugh Miles, who took the pictures for Chris’ ever growing album.
