Sunday 17th feb

Finally made it out for my second short session of the year (first was on the k&a and produced a few decent sized brownies).

I had a few hours before work and with the reports of big perch from the canal a couple of hours with the spinning rod would surely bag me a few fish! I arrived at northcroft in high hopes, then realised I couldn't get to the canal from there so the weirpool and little stretch of river it was. After trying a few different lures, spinners, shads etc. I finally hooked a bankstick, at only a foot long is was short of my p.b so I packed up and went to work.

I've lost count of the scores now but the kennet is winning by a vast margin.

You can get to the canal from Northcroft, go over the big green bridge half way up the stream that comes off the weir?

The canal towpaths were closed that day due to work being carried out Paul, all back to normal now though :)

Ah I've had a landing net handle from the same stretch. Telescopic so I will probably never better that. It did have a tiny chub on as well!
