nicely done saddler you're having a good run.

Weather this afternoon was a little crazy, i decided to walk down the local canal with a rod chair and bag of bait after the zander seeing as the sun was shining, soon as i got to my spot the heavens opened and the was sitting through a hail storm with nothing for shelter but a little golfing umbrella. Managed a little zed about 2lb though so least I didn't blank!

Pretty much mate, although they are said to prefer fresh water dead baits to sea but the canal zander aren't too fussy. They can apparently when larger be very finicky biters and drop baits with the smallest amount of resistance. But my local canal is full of little ones averaging around 1-3lb ,my mate had a 7 and that was the biggest I've witnessed , but they are good sport and its free. I just take my stalker rod and a little pike float and a wire trace with a single barbless size 2 and use half a roach . With the canal I always get a feeling like there's always a chance for that big surprise fish aswell. It's an untapped water really with lots of secrets.
