Back on the Canal 25-7-15

After my last canal session which was a blank,I was in two minds,river or canal,I opted to go back to the canal and try and catch a carp,this area has only seen me catch bream and tench.I arrived at about 7pm and headed to my usual spot,I was going to try another spot but there were people sat on the far bank behind there barges playing music and having a barbecue.
My rods were out and I sat back to what was a lovely evening,it wasn't until about 8 pm my left rod was off.
And this was the result,a bit battered and bruised Bream.
I put that rod back out on the spot and at 8-20pm my left rod is off again,same bream,Ha
Just as it was getting dark I moved my right hand rod on a different spot.
At about 10-15 pm my left hand rod was off again ,a similar sized bream.I sat there for another 15 mins
And decided to go home.Tight Lines Bloggers .

Tuesday Night Barbel

After not being on the river for a few weeks,I managed to get Chris out for an evening session on the Ribble.We arrived at 6-45 and made the long walk to where I wanted to take him.As we neared the spot I wanted there were 4 anglers so we carried on and I could see in the distance 2 more anglers,another area I fancied,so we dropped in a new swim to me.
it wasn't long before Chris had his first rap,a roach on a gobstopper sized pellet,lol.My rods were motionless,as we approached dark I recanted one of my rods and Chris cast to a new spot,he was getting lots of taps and me none.I had a really wild rap on my left hand rod ,followed by a small tap,then boom were in.
Nice splasher barbel that fought hard in low water conditions.
After my action Chris lost two barbel in succession to a snag,unlucky mate,till the next time an
Enjoyable evening spent in good company.

2 Short Canal Sessions 9-7 15

I started the day of by going back to try another area on the canal I hadn't fished for a while.It was a lovely sunny day with a nice breeze.I set up and fished off a barge,boat traffic was busy at times , then a barge came too close to my rods and wiped my right hand rod out, I wouldn't mind everybody else had seen me, there's always one idiot.
I recast ,and sat back, wasn't long before I had s screamer.
Lovely Tench, no more bites , so headed home with an evening session to go.
I arrived for the evening session, similar conditions, I put both rods out and relaxed what I thought looked perfect for a bite.Apart from 2 single beeps on my left hand rod, nothing was happening, till 30 mins later, and that rod was off, after a great fight, she was in the net a lovely canal common.
A new PB 11-13, had to take pic of my camera, will post better pic, when I can

Back on the Canal 4 July 15

Well  it's gone fast , this time last year I was in Michigan celebrating 4 th July, today back on the canal searching out the carp.
I arrived at the canal and I normally forget a towel, tonight it was my net, I had to go home , get the net and go back, wasn't happy one bit.
I got both rods out on the spot and fed a few boillies and sat back, soaking up the nice weather . I was getting a few indications on both rods, then my right hand rod was off.
About 4 lb
I decided to cast that rod over to the far bank .i was still getting a few beeps on the left hand rod, it wasn't until the sun went down, and the light faded ,then my right hand rod was off again, yes another bream similar size.
I stayed till 11 pm, no further action
So packed up and went home.
