Angling Times (UK) - - MIDLANDS -

FOR a bit of top canal sport youll find it hard to beat the Grand Union at Row­ing­ton.

This pop­u­lar match venue, which has held plenty of na­tional events in the past, has been ul­tra-pro­duc­tive in re­cent weeks with big bags of bream show­ing.

The stretch is now run by Leam­ing­ton Spa Angling As­so­ci­a­tion, which op­er­ates an open-to-all mem­ber­ship pol­icy. The club stretch runs from Bridge 62 at Row­ing­ton up to Bridge 67 at Ches­setts Wood, some of which is shared by Stoneleigh Park AC.

Leam­ing­ton press of­fi­cer Phil Mat­tock fishes it reg­u­larly. He says: “The trick is to find some cover or a fea­ture, feed just a golf ball­sized piece of ground­bait or crumb and fish mag­got, worm or pinkies over the top.

“Once bites dry up you can top up, but keep your eye out for bub­bles, as tench and bream will cre­ate these es­pe­cially early morn­ing or evening when they feed.”
