Six perch over 3lb for Paul Elt

Paul Elt proved how effective ‘dropshotting’ is when targeting big perch when he banked six fish over the 3lb barrier.

His biggest specimen weighed in at 3lb 5oz and was taken by the Cambridgeshire-based specialist during a session at Grafham Water.

The Drennan and Dynamite Baits-backed angler used the popular method to delicately work his Drennan Esox Jellignite shad  that was attached to 8lb braid and a size 1 dropshotting hook.

“The flat-calm conditions enabled a really delicate presentation just off the bottom and I took fish from open water and around the snags,” said Paul.
