It’s Another Cold One – Monday Morning Fishing On The Staffs/Worcs Canal

Although the days are reasonable at the moment – certainly dry and hardly any wind, so quite pleasant – the nights are quite chilly.

As you can see from the video, I was confronted with a frozen windshield on the drive. A quick scrape though and I was on my way.

I fished with a 9’ John Wilson Masterline Debut quivertip rod and a Shimano 3500 reel, loaded with 4lb Maxima Chameleon. 

The lead was a 1/4 ounce bomb, with a size 6 shot and 5mm bead. The hook was a Drennan Super Specialist size 16.

I fished the boat channel, with double/single maggot(s) over mixed maggots and brown crumb.
