Malc.I looked at the canal around Milton Keynes on Friday and it was clear although this rain should help colour it up a bit.What do you reckon.If its clear small bits and if coloured skimmers.

Malc,
Have you been yet.I may get time during the week but do not know exactly where the stretch is.From what i can make out it is nowhere near flore but closer to Yardley gobion is this the right stretch.

Keith if you go through Yardley Gobion to Grafton Regis on the A508 from MK.
When you get to Grafton you want to turn right down the side of a pub ( unsure
of its name), when you get to canal bridge best pegs are tp the left around the first bend (i've been told).

I'm down there in the morning (saturday) from work for a few hours so will post full details when i get back as regards how it goes and the name of the pub.

Still don't know how many will be there but i know Scott will be as well as yourself unsure if the 20 or so that was wanted will be there though, but we will see on the day.

Should be fun anyway.
Till tomorrow

Well Keith just got back from Grafton and now i'm trying to remember why i stopped fishing there
.

Started at 8.45 this morning (after work) and finished at 1.30 this afternoon and from the first put in it was almost a fish a chuck. Ended up with 8-8-0.

Had Roach/Perch/Skimmers/Gudgeon & Rudd. Best fish were a Perch & Skimmer about 12oz each. Loads of Gudgeon and Roach.

Caught on 3mtr whip and also up and down far shelf at about 11mtr.

Big maggot/pinkie & squatt were best with the bonus perch falling to worm and the skimmer on pellet.

Will E-Mail you full details tomorrow evenning as i'm going to bed for a couple of hours now cause i'm back in work again tonight at 8 and its a winter league match tomorrow (so no sleep again).


Regards your mate turning up can't see why not.

As i say full details tomorrow
