    Another few more venues are the Oxford Canal , Clattercote Res ,and River Thames, The canal and river about 15 minutes from where I live.
    Then a couple of trips up north to Dunham Fishery, Lloyd's Meadow ,a couple of waters.

    Venues and tackle?

    I’m itching to get back onto my local estate lake and try for a few of the Tench that have been recently stocked; using My Drennan Tench float rod and the Shimano Aero 4000FA front drag reel that I bought last season, or on the bottom using my Greys 1.5lb/2lb multi-tip Specialist rod with the lighter tip section.

    Ill also be chasing a few of the larger Carp in the estate lake using Shimano 5000 series baitrunners and Greys Carp rods and a bit of surface fishing using my lighter 2lb Tc Drennan Powermesh carp rod with my old Abu Cardinal 55 rear drag reel.

    If the river season is open then Ill also be doing a little trotting on my favourite Barbel stream (using my Okuma Sheffield Centrepin reel and my Drennan Tench float rod or my Hardy Marksman 15ft Specialist float rod); and once the light starts to fade I’ll be using my Greys 1.7lb Barbel rod with one of my Shimano 5000 series reels and a link leger.

    But if there’s too many others with the same idea then I’ll be searching out some of our more remote upper Gt. Ouse stretches and leave my favourite stream for a bit later in the year.

    I'm all set for light lure fishing but I'm also ready for feeder fishing and float fishing so it will be decisions decisions and decisions. I reckon we are all itching just to have the choice.

    Yes loads John: the Leeds Liverpool, Macclesfield, to name but two. I think the Bridgewater canal, a favourite of Gordon, shall be the first.

    Did you get a delivery yesterday or today?

    You could do a two in one trip, I do when I go to Hythe sea fishing with the RM canal across the road. I’m sure you could plot a route to your lake that takes in a canal where you could spend a hour either side of some feeder/float fishing and remember you can fish the canal during the close season, maybe not in 2020 though.

    Not arrived yet, turned up at my local depot during the small hours so I guess Monday.

    When I lived in Wilmslow, Mike, I liked to fish the Macc canal at Higher Poynton. There's a place - you'll see it on the maps - where you could cross the canal via a footbridge and fish a big wide from the offside bank, away from any boat traffic. The Trent and Mersey is - or certainly was - a very fishy canal, and when I lived in Chester I often fished various stretches between Middlewich and Northwich - about as far for you now as it was for me. I once followed a tip to fish down from a pub connected to one of your clubs - the Bay Malton Hotel by the canal in Altrincham. But that was 30 years ago and I didn't catch much, so I wouldn't rush back.

    It’s on the WAA card at Poynton and looks worth a visit. I think it’s called the Wide Hole and is classed as a Stillwater as opposed to a canal..

    I do know a few quiet canals but for the biggest part they're just human rat runs!
    Dog walkers, cyclists, walkers, groups of dick head kids, all topped off with thousands of captain birdseye clowns!
