After a well-earned holiday, Alan Scotthorne has returned to the UK in match-winning form! Here’s his account of an impressive win on his local Stainforth & Keadby Canal:
I always take a short break in January overseas for a few days and stepping off the plane at Manchester airport to be greeted by four inches of snow was not the return I was hoping for!
I had only missed one weekend’s fishing but reports were that the cold conditions had taken its toll on both turnouts and results. I was still eager to get back fishing on my local ‘Stainy’ for the Teams Of Three Winter League the coming weekend, as this canal seems to hold up well even though the daytime temperatures are around 2ºC. With bloodworm and joker allowed plenty of bites are still on the cards.
