A little help from your friends

A tip off from a match fishing friend paid dividends for Brian Skoyles with a number of specimen perch to just under 3lb.

“I’d been looking to try and catch a big stripey for a while but had struggled to find a venue close to my home in Yorkshire that was suitable” explained Brian. 

“However I dropped lucky when by chance a friend of mine John suggested a local canal that was regularly producing good sized perch during matches including fish weighed in at over 4lb!”

“My initial trips have been really promising, with one trip producing 2lbers for both John and I and my latest session producing a trio of 2lbers to 2lb 14oz. I’ve already got my next trip planned so hopefully one of the real monsters isn’t too far away!”

Keep an eye on the features section of the Daiwa website over the next few weeks for Brian’s tactics for canal perch fishing.
