Young angler defies nasty weather to land a fine brace of perch

Luke must have used his 'Spidey Sense' to hone in on the perch

Young angler Luke MacGabhann made light of some tough angling conditions to land his first-ever perch last week. Fishing on Templehouse Lake in Co. Sligo, the weather was pretty horrendous, and a couple of days of torrential rain had caused a lot of floodwater to enter the lake making the fishing conditions very tricky. But 5-year-old Luke wasn’t going to let any of this get in the way of his fishing, and using a soft plastic paddle tail lure, managed to catch, land and release a couple of nice perch all on his own.

Luke is only getting started on his fishing journey, and hopefully we will hear more of his angling exploits in the future as he has plans to target pike over the winter months.
