Giant perch brace from Grand Union Canal

Dan Sales’ latest session on the Grand Union Canal saw him bank a brace of perch weighing 3lb 6oz and 3lb 4oz.

The Hertfordshire angler travelled light and wandered the banks of the popular waterway with his favourite ‘jigging’ setup and netted no less than 30 fish during the trip.

Many of the fish that fell to the Fox-backed angler weighed between 1lb 8oz and 2lb 8oz and fell to a Fox Rage Warrior Mini Fry.

“All of my fish came from the same swim, which just goes to show how effective this method is for maximising your chances,” Dan told Angling Times.
