Groundhog Day Fishing On The Canal

Another unplanned session that saw me up bright and early and heading for the canal, also had other similarities from the day before.

The first two fish were roach and then the perch moved in. I didn’t catch anywhere near thirty though, so that’s where it ended.

The rod I fished with was a 12’ Greys Prodigy TX and the reel was a Shimano DL2500FA, loaded with 4lb Maxima Chameleon. 

Joined by a loop-to-loop knot, there was a five feet length of Ultra Virage fluorocarbon 2.5lb line to a Drennan Super Specialist size 18 hook. 

The float was a Drennan 3BB crystal waggler. I fished with single maggot on the hook over brown crumb / loose maggots.
