Going to bed last night, I thought to myself I’ll go fishing in the morning. That was all I needed, as my body stirred naturally at just the right time.
On the canal fishing at first light, the timing was perfect. I caught numerous perch and a couple of roach.
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 two feet length of Ultra Virage fluorocarbon 2.5lb line to a Drennan Super Specialist size 14 hook.
The float was a Drennan 3BB crystal waggler. I fished with double maggot on the hook over brown crumb / loose maggots.
