Catching Perch And Some Video Footage Of Feeding Fish

Nothing big in this evening’s angling session, but as you can see in the video, I did capture some footage of feeding fish.

Courtesy of clear water and the fish being very close to the bank, I was able to film them on my iPhone.

They were fascinating to watch. You can actually learn a lot from observing fish on their natural environment.

I fished with the following tackle: Fox Barbel Specialist 1.5 test curve rod and a Shimano DL2500FA reel. 

The reel was loaded with 4lb Maxima Chameleon and this went straight through to a Drennan Super Specialist size 16 hook, which was attached via a blood knot.

A size 6 Dinsmores shot and a 5mm ESP shock bead created the six-inch hook-length, with a 1/4 ounce bomb above the bead.

I fished with single white maggot on the hook and fed balls of brown crumb laced with mixed maggots. 

I was fishing in twelve feet of water a couple of lengths out.
