I played football myself yesterday, and later today I’ll be on my way to Newtown, for a working game.
In between, though, I did a canal session after perch. Although the water temperature was low, nevertheless I did very well, with action from start to finish.
I fished with a Greys G Lite spinning rod (4-8lb) and a Shimano DL2500FA reel.
Maxima Chameleon 4lb reel line went straight through and the hook length was created by a 5mm bead and a size 6 shot.
The lead was a 1/4 ounce bomb.
Single maggot was fished on a Drennan Super Specialist size 16 hook.
