Bank Holiday Perch Fishing On The Canal – Feedback Welcome

I was up and about early this morning and had a couple of hours on the Staffs/Worcs Canal before the first boat came through. You can see how I got on via the video below.

I fished with the following tackle: John Wilson Masterline Debut 9’ quiver tip rod and a Shimano DL2500FA reel.

The reel was loaded with 4lb Maxima Chameleon, with a hook-length of 1lb 6oz Ultima Virage fluorocarbon. The lines were joined by a loop-to-loop knot.

Hook was a Drennan Super Specialist size 18 with a size 6 Dinsmores shot and a 5mm ESP shock bead creating the six inch hook-length from a small lead.

I fished single red maggot and loose fed the same. I was near a lock and cast a rod length out into open water and the boat channel.

I’ve listed the tackle used in this blog entry. Is that useful and maybe something you’d like me to do regularly? 

Let me know via the comments box below. Any other information you’d like, either in the video or the text? There’s more in the actual video below.
