Feeding the chub

Popped into town to drop off Bethan at Piccadilly and thought I would have a look at the Meddy. Blimey there is no water in it. Really low at the moment. Had a good walk through Beswick and didn't see a single fish. Then we went down to Potato Wharf to see if the fish had moved in for the Summer. Sure enough there were thousands of Chub and perch in the river. So it was off to Sainsburys for a loaf of basics white bread and back to treat the Medlock's residents to an impromptu lunch, chub, roach, perch, ducks and all.
Becoming more of a fish spotter these days than an angler. Spent Sunday watching chub on the Irwell under Trinity Way in Salford followed by a stroll around Drinkwater Park lake. No fishing to report this week, hopefully I will get my head back in gear next weekend and try something a little different on the local canal.
Off to Ewen fields now for the Hyde v Droylsden derby match. The end to another exciting weekend.
