August is often a time pike anglers take a rest as the high water temperatures don’t make for good pike angling. But August can be a good month for perch, and Artur ‘Pikeseeker’ made the most of a recent trip to the River Barrow.

Fishing with a mix of both soft plastics and spinners, he found the perch to be in an active mood, and landed a few nice fish. With the perch season ramping up over the next few months, lets hope to see a few more of these beauties.
