Grand Union at Foxton in Leicestershire

Here are a few pictures of me from the late 70's fishing the Grand Union Canal at Foxton in Leicestershire. I must have been in my late teens.

This picture was taken late last year, again just above the locks.

I love that last shot, Sir. Simply idyllic.

Makes me want to ditch the river and pool tomorrow and go sit by the canal
Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish

Here's a longer shot AC. It's surprising just how beautiful some of our canals look.
