Somwhere lurking in my house are two trays of light canal rigs

14 rigs per tray in preston boxes, winders are Fox ones and are bright dayglo orange, so you would think they would stand out easily

I tied em up, mainly 0.2 and 0.3g rigs about 10 weeks ago at the start of the lockdown, spent a couple of days intermittantly working on them at that time for the new club match season

now getting my stuff together for this sundays match on the canal, can I find them, can I buggery !, they cant walk and they were in the back room, Ive found the other three preston rig boxes I bought at the same time and the red winders I took out the boxes and replaced with the fox orange ones, plus all the bright yellow fox winders that Im going to swap into the three rig boxes that are sitting in front of me now

cant understand it, everything else is here, the box with rig lines, shot, stoz, olivettes rubbers,,silicon etc, the tools

the boxes and trays with the heavier rigs for ponds and commies are here, and I woulda thought I woulda stacked the canal rigs on the shelf with them

but where Ive put those 2 trays, Im bloody stumped !

Didn't you go down the canal with Bill recently?.....Possibly in your box already or in your holdall?

different rigs, went to aldergate with billy and thats 10 to 12ft deep, so use 0.5 to 1g floats there

these were for the shallower sections of around 4ft deep so far lighter 0.2 and 0.3g, and lighter line too
