Sunday 12th May saw 7 DNMAC Juniors fishing the challenging Trent and Mersey canal at Rudheath near Middlewich Cheshire.
The venue, like a lot of northern cacanls, can be very hit and miss with some pegs holding quality fish and others just occasional gudgeon and perch.
As the Trent and Mersey does have significant boat traffic the team plan was to fish over hemp (a heavy bait: not easily washed away by the boats) at the bottom of the far shelf and to run a float with pinkies or punch over the top and catch what we could.
Fishing on the day was, as expected, peggy and with none of our lads drawing on the preferred reed bed pegs, it was to be a bit race.
All our juniors fished hard, even when the weather took a turn for the worst. Angler of the day was our youngest member Zac Bates who produced a 1lb 9oz weight comprising of around 50 small gudgeon to come second in his section.
Well done Zac hope you enjoy fisho!
