Their 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. They do this by sharing knowledge and by fishing in a true spirit of sportsmanship and friendship with all other members of The Perchfishers.
- The Avon Roach Project. The project was started by Budgie Price and Trevor Harrop following the EA 2005 fish stock survey which confirmed the long held belief within the valley that the the roach are in perilous decline in the middle Avon, once renowned for it's roach stocks, and partly upon which the river has earned it's enviable reputation.
The fundamental aim of the project is to assist the reinstatement of a self sustaining population by collecting spawn from true Avon roach and when hatched these fry are reared for two years before being reintroduced into the Avon at predetermined locations.
Trevor and Budgie have won 2011's Fred J Taylor Award for Environmental Stewardship in the world of Angling, congratulations to them, it is richly deserved.
