I will be out during the winter months as i prefer the river being quieter. While i'm fit and able thats what I prefer to do. I guess not everyone is up to it during the cold weather and then there is those that just don't want to. Horses for courses I supose.
I tend to go more in the winter. I can get on the canal midweek with few boats but plenty of bites.
Yesterday 7lb+, skimmers to 8oz, perch to 9 and roach to 5 plus dace, gudgeon, rudd and a huge (for the canal) ruffe , bites all day. I don't post in the section because I can't believe anyone is interested in my day's fishing.
