Full Description

The canal is renowned for its perch stocks. A quiet road runs along the canal for mile-upon-mile and there are plenty of spots with reeded banks and beds of lily pads that simply “scream” fish and all you have to do is pull over and start fishing! You can expect bream, rudd, hybrids, tench, perch, eels and an increasing number of roach and dace. GREAT NEWS… Your normal canal tackle is going to cope nicely with the Grand Canal, bearing in mind that your chosen swim could be crammed with bream and tench to 4lb. Don’t be tempted to tackle up with anything less than a 1.5lb hook length or a main line of 3lb and if there are a lot of large fish about, particularly when fishing close to weed, consider using 3lb direct. As for hooks, stay away from fine wire patterns and match the size to your chosen bait. A good idea is to start with a medium wire 16’s carrying breadflake or a large punch, but have change baits like corn, worm and caster.
