Fishing The Frozen Canal

Kennet & Avon Perch

With a crappy forecast ruling out the boat this weekend, Dan and I headed to a remote section of the Kennet & Avon canal for spot of Perch fishing. Read more

K&A Grand Slam

Completed the K&A Grand Slam today. Perch, Pike and Ruffe. Biggest Perch went 37cm.

41cm 3lb 2oz Perch

3lb 2oz Canal Perch

Over the moon! Certainly the longest Perch I’ve had out the Kennet & Avon Canal. 41cm to the fork. 3lb 2oz. In beautiful condition. Where has she been hiding all this time?!

Lure was the HTO Flail. This time in orange. An active decision on colour after seeing how well Dan did on worm imitations the week before.

Chasing Perch & Pike

40cm Perch

With the weather all over the place in recent weeks it’s been frustrating trying to find any consistency in catches. Some locations have offered up huge shoals of smaller Perch, but until today the bigger 30+ fish have been few and far between. Read more

Perching with George Cunningham

George's First Perch

Without doubt, George Cunningham has had a huge influence on the state of light lure fishing here in the UK. George’s homegrown HTO brand has made it possible for thousands of people to try out LRF and ultralight fishing, without breaking the bank, discovering the addictive fun of these methods. By all accounts, the HTO Rockfish UL remains one of the best selling spinning rods of all time. So, when my threat of taking George Perch fishing on the Kennet & Avon finally looked like a goer last week, we were both really looking forward to it. Read more
