A little course fishing for a change

Headed off to Sollom armed for a change with my Top Section from my Pole. For bait I used only Bread Punch and ground bait. Result = 6 Roach. They were only tiddlers but it was great fun. It took around an hour before the fish moved into my swim. At first I was missing a lot of bites, I later found that I had to over shot my line so that there was hardly any float showing on the surface, this was down to the fact that the fish were so small. My bites soon disappeared when a couple of Narrowboats went past, it was around two hours before I caught another fish. I have the bug now and can't wait to get back on the canal, may have a chance on Friday.
