A Canal Roach Session On The Way To Work

As you can see from the video, I was up and about very early this morning. I’m like anyone else, if I want to fish more then I have to be committed.

It’s very convenient having a canal so close to work, and it suits me perfectly when I want to get extra trips in, that otherwise I wouldn’t be able to do.

As well as the lead image, there are three below that you can click to enlarge.

There’s more from today’s session via the video.

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.
