Fishing Canals

Originally constructed to transport cargo by barges, many canals have now fallen into disrepair. Those canals which run through large industrial areas are often used by thoughtless people as tipping grounds for domestic waste. Whilst some canals only support small fish, there are a few which offer good sport for the angler. The main species to be found are roach, perch, tench and bream. Some canals hold countless numbers of gudgeon and a few have recently been stocked with carp.
