Evening All,

I am from a fishing family and have been fortunate enough to pleasure fish an match fish some very good stretches of the Shropshire Union Canal and the Bridgewater Canal. I was lucky enough to have a dad who in his day was one of "The" anglers to beat. He was the one who started up Birkenhead Centre AC, fished for Connahs Quay alongside his mate Eric Humphries (who at the time was the captain of the Welsh international team and went on to manage them too) He's beat Alan Scotthorne off the next peg twice and won individual National medals as well as team ones. So when I say I'm lucky I really do mean it. With all that experience to pick from I have also been taken to some fantastic stretches of canal with fantastic winter fishing. In all the years we fished these stretches we very rarely seen another angler there. I recall one session we had to break the ice I fish this certain stretch and it was pretty slow as you can imagine but we did catch throughout the day but it was that last hour that always made the trip out in the freezing cold worth while. We started getting hybrids to around 2 1/2lb, roach knocking on 2lb, and bream to around 5lb. I will never forget these days. In the light of all the carp fisheries around now does anyone still get out on the canals in the colder months? How are the canals fishing these days? Would be good to share some stories

Hi and thanks for that.

Yeah I know that site but if I'm being honest I'm just trying to light up a few conversations to get this forum going. There seems to be a lot of people reading the posts but no one posting anything.
