We crept quietly out of Stone yesterday morning before the rush started. Once again I was duty lockie.
We made our gentle way down to Salt and moored just before the bridge, although it's not marked as a mooring there are mooring rings here. The west coast main line is right next to the canal but as the Pendolinos only take four seconds to pass it's not that bad.
This morning I was up and fishing by 05.30. My trusty split cane rod and wooden reel were deployed and after a few minutes
I also had bream and two, count 'em, two, carp.
Oh, were they? gosh.
Watch his space................
