4lb-plus perch caught at range on massive stillwater

by Angling Times |

FISHING at range on a 170-acre stillwater, Leicester rod Lee McManus bagged this 4lb 8oz perch on a worm hookbait over chopped worm and caster feed.

The worm was hooked through the head and the rest of it was cut off, leaving a durable offering that could be cast a long way.

He fished this on a running rig alongside a 2.5oz lead and a short hooklink.
