GARY WALSH had one of his best ever perch sessions when he had three big fish topped by this 4 lb 15 oz stripy.

The Oxford-based storeman tackled a secret local lake and immediately added other perch of 4 lb 6 oz and 3 lb 1 oz.

The 58-year-old said: “I was using chop worm and maggot at 30 metres, and the biggest of 4 lb 15 oz came first. To say I was pleased is an understatement.

“I put my camera on the tripod and took some pictures and within ten minutes of casting out again I caught the 4 lb 6oz perch followed by the one of 3 lb 1 oz.

“I popped up lobworms three inches of the bottom was the winning tactic.”
