The early bird catches the worm on the Staffs/Worcs Canal, with big bream and perch on the bank

Another day, another fishing session and another early start on the Staffordshire/Worcestershire Canal.

With it being a bank holiday weekend, the boat traffic will be more intense than it normally is, so getting there early made sense.

Plus, more importantly, it’s prime feeding time as far as the fish are concerned and, in particular, perch.

I was on a different stretch to yesterday’s session, one which I have fished close to the bridge in the last six months or so.

It’s been years though since I moved beyond the structure itself.
