The run of angling blanks comes to an end with thousands of fish queuing up to be caught!

I really felt determined to finally catch a fish and so, on the way back home, I decided to visit a canal.

Most of our canals are frozen solid at this present time but there’s always ice-free spots, especially where overflow water comes in.

The canals are currently extremely clear as well, so I went to have a look to see if I could spot any fish.

Well, I couldn’t believe my eyes!

Under a bridge – and I’m not exaggerating- there were thousands of fish gathered.
