A day after our Perch Record - New Chub PB for Cliff

After getting a top tip from Alan at Notts fed that there was potential BIG Perch at Weston on Trent- Trent and Mersey canal (Next to the West Bridge) Cliff tried Worm in the following spot.
Nigel, moved to a really good looking spot on the other side of the bridge and had a couple of takes on luncheon meat but didn't manage to connect.
Cliff caught about 6 Perch to 1/2 pound, then Nigel had to get off, so in true poaching style Cliff moved to his old spot, and managed to connect to a cracking 4-12 chub on the pole with cheese paste beating his PB by an oz and 4 oz off Glynns PB.
This was probably the fish that was teasing Nigel earlier, it was a very delicate bite. 
Managed to land a couple of dace, roach and one more perch to 1/2 pound. Tried a ledgured dace until dusk with no luck. Also it took 6 goes to get my car out of the nearby field after the heavy rain, was very lucky to get out :-)
