New British Perch Record - 6lb 2oz!!!

Just a quick one, but I've literally just found out that Neill Stephen has caught Britain's first authenticated 6lb+ perch and set a new British record weight of 6lb 2oz.  I don't know the guy, and I've never fished the venue, but this is a landmark fish and from how the article reads, Neill applied real specialist tactics to land this fish, so kudos.  Well done that man.
