An Early Start After Perch On The Canal, Plus Some Thoughts On Donald Trump, Social Media And More

I’m not going to work until this afternoon, so it was my intention to go fishing anyway beforehand.

I didn’t need to set the alarm, I was up bright and early naturally, and you can follow the session via the video below.

I caught twenty-plus perch and one roach, and as the heading states, I also shared some thoughts as well while fishing.

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 12” 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.

Welcome to my world, welcome to my website. There’s more in the menu at the head of the page.
