Since i resided in Blaby then i plumbed for fishing as local as possible and a 4 minute car journey took me to the canal at Newbridge road between Glen Parva and Blaby.
There i came a cross an angler who was one of the senior members of the Wigston AC , Chairman Steven Pratt
We had a good conversation and talked about the many aspects of the Wigston AC waters and talked of our commonality in Leicestershire local angling.
View to my left . What a fabulous area this is with brand new houses and apartments either side . Must be great for walks into Leicester from here.
Based on his advice i decided to fish below the lock to the left of the Whetstone Bridge close to the overflow outlet.
I plumbed up and found a very nice 4'6'' to 5' boat road with a good 3' shelf . I decided to rig up three tops :
1 - EXNER prototype 0.15gr to 0.9/0.6/24's …... for the far shelf
2 - SENSAS CCX2 4 x 10 0.14/16 …… for some Stripey action.
3 - SENSAS Jeff2 0.3gr to 0.9/0.7/22's …… middle and far track.
Approx 25-30 bits. (sorry about the focus)
