Back On The Lure Fishing For Perch Trail

It’s been a while since I last fished with a lure rod but this morning I dusted the gear down for a session on a pool.

Not only did I fancy the style of angling but it was also very practical, as I didn’t have much time at all before I had to set off for work.

As I’ve said on so many occasions previously – and no doubt will again in the future – lure fishing is perfect when time is tight.

Although only there for thirty minutes or so, I was off the mark instantly with a small perch.

That’s how it remained throughout the session, but I’m not complaining though, it was just good to catch.

The tackle I fished with was as follows: Fox Rage Ultron drop shot rod, Fox Rage Ultron 2500 reel, 10lb Sunline braid on reel. 

Fox Rage Illusion fluorocarbon 10lb 3oz (1.5 metres) joined to the braid with a small swivel.

Micro jig head 1g size 6 hook. Glider 2 inch rubber fish. All knots (3) blood knots.
