Trip to the Netherlands results in 4lb 6oz perch

A trip to the Netherlands for a guiding session with Dutch predator ace Willem Stolk paid off for Sussex angler Richard Wesley after landing this personal best 4lb 6oz perch.

Fishing with his compatriots Andrew Blazey, James Garnder and Andrew Lush the foursome landed more than 20 perch over 4lb during the trip which they spent targeting a popular river system near Rotterdam.

Under the watchful eye of Shimano-backed Willem, the group targeted zander and local species such as asp as well as the perch using 5g-14g jigheads and Rapala crank lures.
