When it first took off I thought it was a big perch too. I've never caught a perch above 2lb odd, do they fight like tench?We done indeed I can only imagine how well that must have gone in a river at that size!
Watched my grandad get one out the Thames a couple years ago that certainly wasn't that big but it had me thinking it was either a barbel or a record perch! Different animal to the Stillwater ones for sure, still had the doggedness but it properly ran as well which was quite un tench like.
