Local angler Steven Griffiths showed his prowess on our Wyrley & Essington Canal yesterday in extremely hot and bright sunshine - it was
hardly Mr Crabtree conditions - managing to put this net together
Our canal features in this month's (September) edition of Pole Fishing magazine. Just a reminder to qualify things, annual club cards, running from June 16th each year are available from myself (contact details etc on the first page of this topic) for just £5 for the year
Any MD'ers who used to deliberately view this topic would remember that I used to post quite a few pictures to give a 'flavour' of the canal via the host 'Photobucket'. Sadly all those images on the previous 14 pages 'vanished' when I didn't take up Photobuckets options and cough up 400 sovs or so to them.
I've stumbled across a data stick holding some of the images which I'll start drip feeding onto here as they may be of some interest to 'new' viewers.......
Starting with a pickie of Si Nickless from a few years ago with a cracking bag of bremes from down the wides
I had a float fishing session down the cut this evening after work.
After picking up some nice roach I scaled up my rig for my 'hoping for lucky carp hour' as the day light started to fade.
I started on sweet corn and got few nibbles, but no more. Then swapped back to my fav bread flake and soon pulled out this 5.5 lb Bream. Now fully slimed and with the weather getting colder, I headed for home. Carp can wait for another warmer evening.
