Angler gets the drop on lure-loving perch

Adam Perna has taken a stunning haul of perch topped by this 3lb 15oz specimen.

The Oxfordshire specialist was fishing a southern reservoir with his friend James Aris, who laid claim to perch ranging from 2lb 8oz to 3lb 5oz.

Adam backed up his 3lb 15oz fish with perch weighing 3lb 10oz,  3lb 7oz, 3lb 4oz and 3lb 2oz. All their fish were taken on the popular drop shotting tactic.
