Talking of colours, these two came from the same shoal.
The first photo was taken on a normal day....

The next one was taken on the day of the 'red sun'.

You can see a bit of a difference in the photo's, but IRL it was even more extreme. All the fish I caught that day looked amazing.

Take a good look at the two Perch, 1 by Col, 2 by jerryrum.

It shows something I've wondered about for years, are there different su species of perch?, or is it just that perch are prone to variation.
Count the stripes, I've caught perch with anything between 5 and 8 stripes over the years.

I've just gone back through my phone gallery and all the Perch I've caught have either 5 stripes or 5 obvious stripes and a 6th faint one next to the tail. Occasionally the middle stripe is a Y shape.

These are all caught in the Milton Keynes area but came from a variety of waters; the Great Ouse, the river Ouzel, the GUC, two local streams and various still waters.

Going through the photo's there is no obvious difference between the Perch from each of these waters.

Interesting point. I've no idea. Five seems a favourite number, with a few 6s, 7s, 8s and the odd 9 putting in an appearance, if you include the less discernible band at the tail.

I have two young children at home, my only chance to fish is on my lunch break from work, hence the suit.

The garish ties don't seem to put the fish off
