Another Day And Another Early Morning Canal Session

I’m into a certain routine at the moment, waking early and getting a short early morning angling session in on one of the local canal sections.

Today I was up at 6.00 a.m. as the days are getting longer. Although it’s still February, there are definite signs that spring is in the air.

You can follow the session via the video below.

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 the boat channel, with two maggots over mixed maggots and brown crumb.
