    I am pretty sure looking at the website that this started off as a Verulum water. The roach fishing was superb, the stock coming from Verulum Park lake. After a couple of years of stocking they were...

    Re: landing net for canal lure fishing

    I use one of these nets as above. From memory its the larger size but the smaller one would be ideal for perch and jacks. This photo appeared earlier in HDYGO.

    I would say exactly as above as Peter fishes in Herts canals which get more challenging when the colour drops out in the winter.

    Re: The cost of your fishing.

    I find that the internet is the most expensive item causing excess cost of fishing for me. It makes it far too easy to find items of tackle that I just cannot live without.
