Regarding the early start, it’s also a practical consideration at the moment, because this is the time of the year when boat traffic will be at its most intense.

Some canals are busier than others but the summer holiday period is invariably the time when you’ll encounter more boats.

Rather than battle the almost constant flow in the middle of the day, I prefer dawn and dusk.

Plus, that’s when the fish will be feeding as well.
