I do think that the Kennet and Avon canal has to be one of the best canals in the country. It is full of fish thoughout most of all the stretches. I have spent many hours on it, and have had more good days than bad.
The canal fished well really, with 19lb winning from peg one. There was 8lb and plently of 7lb weights.
Avington fished a bit harder than normal, as they gave us 15 yard pegging, which is a little tight. If i'm honset, but everybody caught. Average weight would be 5lb. I had plenty of bites, would sooner of had a few more!!! But hey ho, looking a 2lb perch wasn't a good way to start the match!!!
