There is also a river nearby, but I have no idea if an additional permit would be required to fish that. I'll have to start making enquiries!
It's the Lancaster Canal, and the River Brock. I don't suppose you can fly fish a canal? I have a fly rod, and a spinning rod. I don't really want to shell out for a ton of new equipment, and I draw the line at little alarms that tell you when you have a bite (what's the point of that!?).
Most fish can be caught on the Fly for Gugeon I would Say a Small weighted Buzzer as they are Bottom feeders , Zander and Pike some sort of Fry / Fish imitator Carp will take Most dry Flys as will roach and Rudd .
Personally I wouldnt eat anything from a Canal apart from possibly crayfish that have been put in fresh water for a couple of weeks
If you want fish for the pot, I suggest sea or game (ie Trout) fishing.
Do a GOOGLE for a fishing club in that area. Or get a Licence from the Post Office in Lancaster which will tell you where you are able to fish.
Eels and pike make good eating, both need leaving ina bucket of floured water for several hours to clean them, fried or grilled they are a cheap meal. :wink:
every change is scarey even if we want it
