NEWLY-CROWNED Fox Specimen Cup champion Ken Brown has immediately made a defence of his title by matting this 5 lb 9 oz perch.

Amazingly it is a different fish to the others he’s tempted at the Hertfordshire stillwater which helped win him the £3,000 crown.

All have been different and scaled 5 lb 10 oz and 4 lb 14 oz – the heaviest UK perch brace ever – plus 5 lb 14 oz and 4 lb 12 oz.

His latest fish came the weekend after collecting his cheque and being shown round the plush Fox head office.
