Anglers Mail - - Where To Fish - N

Aan­gler was telling me what a great morn­ing’s fish­ing he had en­joyed, catch­ing bream to 2 lb, roach to 12 oz and a few chunky perch, us­ing just a cou­ple of rounds of bread and a few worms.

He was at the Powys end of the Mon­mouthshire and Bre­con Canal, and apart from his friend fish­ing along­side and do­ing equally well, there wasn’t an­other an­gler to be seen.

As well as fish­ing in beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings, you can do it

365 days of the year for a £20 Canal & River Trust Wa­ter­way Wan­der­ers ticket, mak­ing it af­ford­able for even the most aus­ter­ity stricken.
