I’ve created a habit recently of waking naturally each morning, with plenty of time to get on the canal, just as dawn breaks.
This morning was no exception.
I fished with a Greys G Lite spinning rod (4-8lb) and a Shimano DL2500FA reel.
Maxima Chameleon 4lb reel line was joined to 1lb 6oz Ultima Virage fluorocarbon by a loop-to-loop knot.
The hook length was created by a 5mm bead and a size 6 shot. The lead was a 1/4 ounce bomb.
Single maggot was fished on a Drennan Super Specialist size 18 hook.
