Getting Close...

Post by The Sweetcorn Kid » Sun Nov 16, 2014 5:34 pm

I'll do a proper report later, but had four perch over 2.7 with the best going a whopping 3lb 15oz, just 2oz shy of my pb!!

Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

Cracking Billys there Stu!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

A stupendous perch, well done Stu. It would have beaten my best by one ounce.
