If allowed, try a small livey in the margins.

Using a Float rod is still perfect for the job and great for fishing worms and prawns just on the bottom with little resistance. I think it's often overlooked with people preoccupied behind the alarms. Summer evenings you can defiantly pick them up, but the activity of other fish can sometimes get in way a bit, particularly at commercials. Autumn and winter are ideal as other species start to slow down.

The Tackle Box Darenth Valley 0.75tc rods as mentioned are ideal. I have two of these rods which I also use for crucians. I often use one along with a 13 ft float rod for the perch. There is a slightly stepped up 1.25tc as well. Big hook with big baits and hit them early to avoid deep hooking.

Zombie thread!.


so i too have been looking at giving something different a go as some of my time is rather limited and the thought of doing a few hrs fishing for perch on a summers evening appeals if i dont fancy getting a load of gear out for carp

so targeting them in the summer is float fishing worms/maggots the way to go (and then have a more serious attempt in the winter once ive got back in the swing of fishing for them again

when i used to do it years ago it was any old float rod / ledger and 4-5lb line and used to have a good time

Thanks Mark. I emailed AD and they recommend me a cheap little Shimano spinning rod and reel. Going to see how I get on with chasing the perch and if I enjoy it then Iíll look to get myself a better set up

Darent Valley 11ft specimen. Itís a .75lb rod absolutely perfect for Perch fishing mate. Cheap as chips. I use one of them for 90% of my Perch fishing. A 1.25lb DV Avon rod for heavier live baiting when necessary. The .75 will do you just fine. Some of the top Perch anglers use them.

For a reel the Drennan FD 4000 are great little reels. Comes with two spare spools. Youíll pick up both for around £100 for the pair.

Float fishing or ledgering worms, small livebaits , or prawns . As for venue, if you have a local carp fishery which doesn't have a big head of pike then it's worth a go.

Love a bit of perch fishing

I use a simple feeder set up. A lovely little Mitchell reel that I've had for ages (thanks dad).

A feeder full of maggot / chopped worm and either a couple of maggot or a juicy worm on a size 12 kamasan.

Margins and edges of weed beds are good spots. First light and last light / dusk can be key times as they're often on the hunt then.

Im looking to start fishing for perch this winter as I really liked catching them as a kid but for the last 20 odd years Iíve just been focused purely on carp

Anyone able to recommend a rod/reel/tackle etc without breaking the bank and any places worth trying for them in Kent (Iím based in Medway but donít mind travelling a little way)

Any tips and advice will be appreciated
