Really enjoying the canal right now. Trying a new stretch this year. Lots of small Perch and plenty of Jack Pike are keeping me busy while I hunt for a 40cm+
kennet and avon canal
Quiet on the Kennet and Avon Canal today. Managed these two Perch and stirred a couple of Pike. Fished Reins Bubbling Shads on a texas rig. Chartreuse was the best performing colour.
Dan and I had the pleasure of fishing with Andy Ford today, on my local stretch of the Kennet and Avon. You may know Andy as the enthusiastic, roving reporter from 'Tight Lines' on Sky Sports. Even if you don't subscribe to Sky you can still watch Andy's excellent features online. They cover literally all facets and disciplines of our sport - yes, even LRF! In fact, Andy has just launched a new website where he plans to catalogue all the excellent footage he has captured over the years.
