Should every boy's first fish be a perch?

Post by Tengisgol » Sun Sep 22, 2013 1:17 pm

Took my two out this morning and they caught their first perch, as it should be, in the park under the bridge on a worm!

Followed up by a great big brunch!

Lovely stuff just as it should be

Super well done perch are fabulous creatures big or small
Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish

Definitely should be a perch. Mind that perch is a bit of a specimen for a first perch, I think the youngster is very lucky indeed, I think it was two years fishing before I caught anything close to that big.
