Fishing The Staffordshire / Worcestershire Canal

Not quite bright and early but I was out fishing at 10.00 a.m. this morning for a couple of hours. You can follow the session below.

The water temperature was 11.7C, which was down from 13.4C on my last visit. That was also a fall of 0.8C from the previous day. We’re into autumn now, for sure.

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 an 18’’ 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.
