    Cashmores AC are running opens on Wednesday evenings on their newly acquired stretch of The Wyrley & Essington Canal at Pelsall Common, starting next Wednesday 13th June 2007.
    Draw 5-30 pm by the 'walkover bridge' on Pelsall Common (Between Norton Road and Wood Lane).
    Fishing 6 - 15pm to 9 - 15pm.
    Pools are £6 - 00 all in.

    Just turn up on the bridge if you fancy a dabble on this excellent stretch of canal.

    Been up the cut tonight - dropped JK off at the Fingerpost pub (peg 1) and had a wander down...........who was just setting up at 6.05pm. None other than Cotti the Warburton King down for a practise

    Paid him several visits in between pints - and he was bagging.............3 and 4oz roach every put in within 10secs.

    But will 15lb of roach be suffice as the tenchies and breamies show on other lines

        went down there yesterday afternoon, had an amazing 6 hours, amassing a great weight of tench and bream and also losing 2 absolute monsters.

        got there at 2pm to find 2 gents on the oak trees by the royal oak pub. so i walked further along,about half way between the bridges. was very overcast and was not sure what to expect. first chuck on single magg on 22 hook i get a perch touching a 1lb,followed by a prime roach about 10oz and a succession of roach,rudd up to 5oz and then bang, out came the no4 elastic,following a hefty fight i netted a great tench about 3lb. Out came the monster gear,14 elastic 5lb line 16 hook. Had another tench straight away about 3lb followed by a succession of skimmers up to 1lb+. Then came a boat which met a quiet spell, but having fed some more worm i got into the tench again, catching 4 in 4 chucks the biggest about 4.5lb. Then a bream came to top about 4lb and the smile could be seen on my face from a long way away.Nosey gents drinking in the beer garden ambled over to ask what i was doing,what didnt help was that one of them spued his guts up in the margin,human grounbaiting at its best. The missus came over and i set her up on a 5m whip and she was annoyingly outcatching me, perch,roach skimmer hybrids and bump a tench just as my laccy was out again, now this was awlkward, 2 tench on at same time..but we just about managed it even tho mine was a tad bigger than her 2lb specimen.I then had a succession of tench and 2 real quality bream about 4lb, the biggest tench was about 5lbs and snagged me up twice en route to the net. i also got smashed up twice, they must have been carp or monster tench to snap 5lb 12oz line.the missus went at 6 so i had last hour to myself and added a few more tench, a 6lb pike that took double maggot and another couple of real prime roach that looked like they'd never been caught before, 1 was well over the pound mark.last half hour was spoilt by a barge full of morons hammered out of their heads speeding thru,and a young child who accompanied and ecouraged by her father started shcuking bricks in the canal about 6 yards was a fantastic days fishing, just goes to show what the curley wyrley canal is capable of. ended up with 14 tench 4 bream,6 skimmers and about 10lbs of roach rudd and perch. not to forget the pike.
