When I’m having a working from home day, it invariably means that I will be able to get at least one angling session in, sometimes two. As I had a late one the day before, so wasn’t up as early as I normally am, on this occasion it was the former.
I set off for a Black Country canal, fishing as I so often do, right next to a lock. In the 2.5 hours that I was there I didn’t encounter a single boat, which is the beauty of this time of the year. In fact, it will pretty much be like this right now until next Easter.
Not that there will always be zero boat traffic, of course not, but certainly far less than the summer peak. When the water is very clear during the cold winter months, the odd boat is actually welcome as it brings colour.
You can see how I got on this time round via the video below. As far as the conditions were concerned, the rain was heavy, but never let that stop you. The fish are wet anyway so it doesn’t bother them. Just go fishing and don’t worry about the weather.
