Dan's Perch

This morning didn't produce any carp but Dan caught this small perch... Think I'm going perch fishing next time, see if I can find his big brother!

And a bit of Photoshopping later... Monster...

And I forgot to mention I'm now exactly half way to my target of catching 69lb of carp.

10 minutes walk from Streatham High Street, across a park and hidden by trees, Tooting Bec pond is like being in a different country. At 7am, with parakeets flying overhead and terrapins swimming about, it's so easy to forget you are in London.

11lb Mirror Carp

First carp from Tooting. It cost £69 for a permit, so I'm going to try and match (or beat) the price in pounds of fish. A running total will appear to the right... 58lb of carp left to catch...
