This was my twentieth angling session since the restrictions were lifted two weeks ago, and once again I was on a canal. In fact, all but two outings so far have been on the cut, as it’s known locally.
However, as the title states, you can never have too much of a good thing. Although I am planning on spreading my wings from now on, the canal will always feature as it’s local.
As always, you can follow the session via the video below. I enjoy making videos and that’s the key to blogging in general. You have to enjoy it.
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 three rod lengths out into the boat channel and open water.
