There were a lot of leaves in the water which made fishing difficult a lot of the time. It did make for a beautiful walk though and there were a few other souls out enjoying themselves as well. The canal here runs through some lovely woodland and it's hard to believe that at times you are only a 100 yards or so from the motorway.
I fished my way along to this folly, but there was nothing doing at all, not even a sight of a fish. If the truth be told I'm not sure I was fishing it right? Perhaps my lures were just too big on such a narrow piece of water? A lovely day to be out and about though - food for the soul.
A real delight to see some colour in the walls as well. This is Feverfew growing from a wall along from The Bridge Inn. A popular medicinal plant with many uses, such as a remedy for headaches and a cure for feminine complaints.
Anyway after a couple of hours I was beginning to think it wasn't my day so I headed back to the car. A nice time out but I need to re-think my tactics if I am to find some pike.
