Now that the conditions are improving, I’ve been able to focus on perch, which are invariably my target species when on the canal.
Although they’re not feeding prolifically yet, nevertheless they are putting in an appearance.
None on the menu this morning though but, as the heading suggests, I was still on the right side of the line again.
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 maggots over mixed maggots and brown crumb.
