    Default First Perch on Fly

    Had a session on a local trout stocked lake in the wind and snow last Sunday, first Perch on fly, had 6 altogether and one Rainbow.

    Lovely fish. It looks a good size too?

    What fly did it take?

    I don't often fish stocked lakes, but last time I did I had taken 3 of my 4 limit bag by 11am so switched to red jig hook flies to target Perch to make the day last a bit longer.

    It was just as much fun as chasing Rainbows.

    Yes great colours, that one was taken on a mini version of a pike lure, styled like a Perch! The other 5 and the Trout all fell to the same rubber legged Daddy.

    You can have some great fun with perch especially if you fish a couple of small baitfish patterns, the dropper will take more than the point fly, still haven't figured out why yet even though I specifically target them. Small baitfish patterns tied from DNA holofusion and frosty fish fibre are superb

    I have had most of my luck with perch on the fly with an orange fritz or similar orange cats whisker with a flash through it (even more so than standard fry patterns don't know why.) Tight lines.

    Caught a mighty five incher on a nymph a couple of weeks back. Quite rare on my trout stream. Knew it was a perch before I saw it as it was being followed by another perch! The predatory instincts of a shoal fish eh!
    Growing old disgracefully!
