I’ve never been fishing before then my stepfather took me for the 1st time during the summer hols, we fished the St.Helens canal mainly…
My 1st fish was a 12lb common, the next time we went I managed to catch a Tench just over 5lbs on a float with a single grain of corn then the last time the Perch, he said he’s spent a life time fishing for these pbs and I’m a lucky bugger…
I say he’s the lucky one for being able to net them for me 😁
Thanks old man 😂😂
We have been fishing the canal in St.Helens town centre fishing for Carp with light tackle on a quiver tip and on the float with either bread flake and sweet corn as free offerings or a single grain of corn in the margins.
My fishing background – I’ve been course fishing for the past 30yrs mainly for Roach, Dace and Chub on the river Avon in Hampshire and the river Stour in Dorset.
