Farewell, November, With An Early Morning Angling Session On The Canal

Before I got on with the rest of the day, I was on the canal at first light again this morning.

I don’t even need an alarm clock, I wake up at just the right time, regardless of when I go to sleep the evening before.

You can follow today’s session via the video below.

We’re in a mild spell at the moment and I travelled comfortably to and from the canal in shorts and short-sleeved training top.

The water temperature was 11C, which is pretty impressive for the last day of November.

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 fed brown crumb and mixed maggots and the fish were caught on double red maggot.
