Who are we?

The Perchfishers is a relatively small, friendly group of 60 plus perch anglers and specimen hunters. Our aim is to further the knowledge of the perch as a species, including the methods and locations for its capture. The Perchfishers are successful in fishing for and landing many big perch, including some of the largest specimens recorded in the UK. We do this by the sharing of knowledge and by fishing in a true spirit of sportsmanship and friendship with all other members of The Perchfishers.

    A few words from our President ...

    "The Perchfishers is simply a friendly bunch of anglers that love perch fishing. One of my proudest moments in angling was when I was asked to be President of the Club. To be asked by your peers to take on such a role is special and suggests I'm doing something right!

    To anyone thinking of joining The Perchfishers, you'll find a warm welcome, and some experienced heads willing to exchange information and learn from each other. I look forward to my role in the Club and hope to catch a few monster perch along the way.

    Tight lines"
