A Couple Of Hours Fishing On The Staffs/Worcs Canal In Glorious Sunshine

Most of my sit-down canal sessions have been early morning, but earlier it was towards the opposite end of the day, when I set off for a couple of hours fishing.

I caught perch and roach and, as always, there’s a video that I recorded from the water’s edge. It was a glorious day, and although there was plenty of water movement, I only had one boat pass through.

As things are very busy at the present time, having local stretches of canal is really convenient. I’m there in no time at all.

I was talking to an angler from Walsall who had been on the road for forty-five minutes, due to rush hour traffic.

It was never that bad for me previously, living on the edge of the Black Country conurbation, in Sedgley, but now it’s even better.

I fished with a Greys Prodigy 12’ rod and a Shimano 3500 reel loaded with Maxima Chameleon 4lb line. 

There was 5 feet length of 2lb 8oz Ultima Virage fluorocarbon joined by a loop-to-loop knot. 

The float was a 0.6g Drennan Crystal Waggler. The hook was a Drennan Super Specialist size 18. 

I fished the boat channel, with brown crumb and mixed maggots and single white maggot on the hook.
