New canal ticket

More time for fishing this month and I’ve bought myself a canal ticket for the Trent & Mersey. I’ve fished the canal three times this month for the first time in my life and blanked each time! I wasn’t sure what I was doing wrong at first as I plumbed up and used fairly light tackle. The third session on the way back to the car, I got chatting with an experienced canal angler who was catching silvers and he suggested using small worms on a small hook, size 16 or 18 this time of year. I was using red maggots on a size 14 hook and the fish just weren’t feeding on them.

I did manage to catch a nice Roach on 27 March and a descent Bream on red maggots over maggots and hemp on a short session at my favourite Earl venue, Mill Dam.
