Where has Summer gone?

I had arranged a session on the canal with Mo today. We arrived at around 7.15am. After basking in the sun all week and enjoying temperatures in excess of 70f. Today was like stepping back to winter, it was cloudy, light drizzle and breezy and temperatures returning to around 50f. After around an hour on the canal I decided that we should head for Twin Lakes. This is because I thought the fishing would be slow on the canal today and that Twin Lakes would offer better fishing and shelter. The fishing was hardly frantic today, Mo only caught 2 fish and I caught 5 including the usual 2 Eels. Twin Lakes seems to literally switch off in the afternoon better fishing can definitely be had in the morning here.
