Fishing Through The Leaves Again This Morning – But Did I Catch?

It’s that time of the year where leaves make their way into our fishing venues, often in large numbers.

It doesn’t necessarily have to stop us from angling though, we can still cast a line, whether through the leaves themselves or wherever a gap appears.

That was the case this morning for me on my short session on a canal.

I fished with a Greys G Lite spinning rod (4-8lb) and a Shimano DL2500FA reel. 

Maxima Chameleon 4lb line went straight through to a Drennan Super Specialist size 16 hook.

The hook length was created by a 5mm bead and a size 6 shot. The lead was a 1/4 ounce bomb. 

I fished with double maggot and fed maggots / brown crumb.

The water temperature was 10.3C, down from 11.3C on my last trip. In percentage terms, that’s a sharp drop.
