Perch record broken!

The British perch record has been broken with a 6lb 4oz fish from Wilstone Reservoir on the famous Tring complex.

It was taken by specimen hunter Ken Brown, who used a lobworm hookbait in conjunction with a swimfeeder containing a piece of sponge soaked in attractant oil.

In the same week, Ken also banked another huge fish weighing well over 5lb.
