Northampton Rubber Slinger, also known as Chris Lyon, is an experienced angler who has a knack for catching large fish. His skills are particularly impressive in challenging conditions, where he has been known to reel in 3lb Perch with ease.
Chris took advantage of the current weather conditions during his recent river campaign, knowing that the river was at risk of flooding soon.
In his own words, Chris said “I began scanning the area where I had finished on my last adventure. After what felt like a million casts I had a massive hit which I missed and honestly I felt devastated. Still plugging on I had another big hit which this time I connected with and after an epic battle a chunky big perch surfaced and all that effort was rewarded. Left resting in the net I casted straight back To the same spot and boom another big hit and another nice perch.”
Chris was able to manage three bites in total after four hours of continuous fishing. Interestingly, two of those bites were over 3lb, making it a challenging yet rewarding session for him.
