Canal Perch Today
Grabbed a couple of hours on my local stretch of canal today just to do a bit of spinning. It was relatively uneventful, but still a relaxing way to spend a little time, and along with a few follows from Jack Pike, I did manage to bank this pretty Perch. Not big, but a reasonable reward for a low effort session. Roach and bream were still spawning as they had been last week when I was targeting them on the fly (see here for more!). Also I spotted a thumper of a carp lurking in some margin weed - very broad across the back and must have been well into double figures! I may return tomorrow depending on weather and time constraints... watch this space.
