I’m certainly enjoying the furlough life as far as angling is concerned. This late evening session was my 18th since the restrictions were lifted.
As always, there’s a video, and you can see how I got on in that.
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 canal as it started to widen, fishing just off an overflow pipe.
