Do you remember bending my ear about being the greatest Perch angler in Ireland/the world. Caught above Victoria lock and released below the lock separating him from his entire family. Answers to the name Nemo.

Legend has it the chain was firmly affixed to the kayak during the fight, only to snap when the monster approached the boat. If not for Captain Pat's cat like reflexes in grabbing the remaining half of the chain we'd not be seeing that specimen now. Tis the story of the epic battle. #chainbreaker # perchedabovetherest #epicbattle #iamgonnastop now.
