South Yorkshire Navigation Canal

Post by BendSomeCane » Tue Jan 15, 2019 10:25 pm

An afternoon attempting a few perch on the navigation with Pennine Lad was in store today ...
Quite mild I thought .... today they might chew...

Bloody difficult in the wind which did not know which direction to blow !

4 hours without a bite ...then the last 20 mins before dusk.. the dip of the bob...

The bending 50yr old cane..a fish of one pound ten ounces

‘‘Tis a wide featureless unpleasant stretch of old industrial canal built many a year ago ... but it’s stuffed with these :wave:

Nice fish, well done chaps!
With my silken line and delicate hook, I wander in a myriad of ripples and find freedom.

Nice canal perch but surely that rod is glass fibre?

I suspect it's most likely Spanish reed.

Fine perch too!
I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing.

Gentlemen, it is whole cane bottom and middle it’s a spliced split insert, Pennine Lad suspects it’s a millwards and it’s marked The Welland E Stamford Sheffield.

I bought it from an old friend whom when he got married in 1965, he claimed his father had bought it just before he married.

The biggest of all fish, no matter what its size.

Nice catch BSC, well done for persisting that long without a bite!

I quite like fishing old industrial canals, in their own way they have as much character and heritage as some of our more famous and revered
waters.

I stand corrected - I'm not familiar with painted whole cane but as ever on here I'm learning :Hat:

Well done Gents,
Perch just love 'um regardless of size.....just as well mine have all been small 'uns lately.
This time of year ,that last hour is a magic time,it makes the hairs on the back of neck stand up as the anticipation builds when out on an adventure.
The number of times you manage to get a result during that moment in time.
Fabulous ...all the best on your next outing.
-Nige.
