A Birthday Perch On The Staffs/Worcs Canal. Just The One Fish, But Like Life Itself, It’s Often A Tight Line Between ‘Success’ And ‘Failure’ (1196)

What do you do on your birthday? You go fishing. Well, I do anyway.

Allowing the boat traffic to die down, I had a short evening session on the Staffs/Worcs Canal. It took a while for the swim to produce even a tap on the rod tip.

Then, after lots of small fish activity, I had a proper bite and the result was the perch that you can see in both the lead photograph and the video image.
