Massive perch caught by Alan Stagg

Here's a chance to see a short video of Alan Stagg's impressively massive 5lb 4oz perch caught recently from a commercial carp water.

The top specimen hunter fulfilled his dream of catching a monster perch this winter on his very first trip targeting the species when he landed this huge fish topping the scales at 5lb 4oz.

A cunning balanced hookbait combination comprising a real lobworm and a fake redworm fooled the new personal best for the 28-year-old, who finished as a runner-up in last year's Drennan Cup competition.
