Making the most of every opportunity, I did some fishing before work this morning.
I wasn’t there long but it was a happy visit. It will also be the final one on that particular section for a while, because, on the way back home, I noticed the road alongside the canal is now closed for repair work.
I again fished with the Greys rod, as per the last two angling-related blog entries.
It’s proving to be an excellent choice, as I can put it in the boot when I’m working, and I want to do some fishing around that, like today.
I fished with a Greys G Lite spinning rod (4-8lb) and a Shimano DL2500FA reel.
Maxima Chameleon 4lb line went straight through to a Drennan Super Specialist size 16 hook.
I would normally go lighter for roach but the rod was set-up from the day before so I kept it as it was, especially as time was limited.
The hook length was created by a 5mm bead and a size 6 shot. The lead was a 1/4 ounce bomb.
I fished with double maggot and fed loose maggots.
