Visiting My Friends On Christmas Eve

It was a cold one this morning, as the can of de-icer put in an appearance for the first time in a while.

The roads were very light, as far as traffic is concerned, as it seems many have now broken up for Christmas.

As you can see from the video below, it was a very slow session. I did catch though, albeit just the one perch.

Maybe the heading should have been ‘Visiting My Friend On Christmas Eve’.

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. 

Double red maggot was fished on a Drennan Super Specialist size 16 hook. I fished the boat channel on a local canal.
