Brace of perch personal bests for schoolboy

A short session on a northern stillwater produced a brace of personal best perch for James Johnson – this 3lb 4oz specimen the highlight.

The Doncaster-based schoolboy arrived at the venue with his dad, Danny, just a couple of hours before last light and cast out two rods, one with a legered lobworm and the other with a waggler using the same hookbait.

A predator of 2lb 6oz fell to his float rod shortly before his tip wrapped round with the biggest fish of the trip.
