Andy comes in handy on the Cuckoo Canal
The Cuckoo Canal Pool over at Townsend Lakes once again fished well despite the bad weather.
Out in front with 87lb was Andy Deller. He fished a short pole line all day with pellet from peg 18.
Just a few pegs away was runner-up Andy Adams with 86lb 8oz taken on the pole with pellet followed by Steven Hillman with 72lb 8oz.
One fishery that never seems to hit the headlines, yet is full of fish, is Northey Park Fishery - not the big specimen pool, but the smaller pleasure lakes.
I suspect most of the regulars like to keep their best catches quiet, but talking to owner Elliott Symak at the weekend the fishing has been good and well worth a visit.
If you are after a spot of carp fishing give the Blacketts Pool a try on pellet or maggot, or for tench and carp the Holly Pool will be the one to head for.
The fishery is on the outskirts of the city centre just off the North Bank. A point to remember though is that it’s closed on a Monday and Tuesday.
