I’m blessed in that I have access to miles of rural canal stretches within minutes of where I live.
The last few trips have been to where a boat is moored and that was the same this afternoon as well.
I fished with a 9’ John Wilson Masterline Debut rod and a Shimano 3500 reel, loaded with 4lb Maxima Chameleon.
The lead was a 1/4 ounce bomb, with a size 6 shot and 5mm bead. The hook was a Drennan Super Specialist size 16.
I fished with two red maggots over mixed maggots and brown crumb.
