I've thought about it, but I don't have perm on the place, no one bothers me when I'm on it, so I don't want to rock the boat, 

4.30 am on a summer day off by 6.30 nobody knows any different,

Here is one I had last night. I've been trying to get a 2lb perch for about 3 years now. Waters are few and far between here in Wales. I was shared a place by someone I know who told me to keep the secret which I will, he showed me photos of plenty of 2lb fish he's had and one weighing bang on 3lb. I went there yesterday for the first time and landed this 3lb 11oz monster!!! I'm still buzzing from it, and I absolutely smashed my aim of a 2lb fish. Caught on worm using the drop shot method. Had another 5 perch all under 1lb. I fished from 9pm til 11pm so that answers any questions regarding of perch feed on the night lol.

It is a well known fact that diver's goggles make fish look far bigger than they actually are.

It is the same with barbel. There are some in Turkey and the Middle-East that run to over 200lb. Imagine the bite you would get from one of those 😮

Mind you, the way things are going with non-endemic species it is only a matter of time before some half-wit introduces Nile Perch or Mangar to English rivers.
