On a lighter note I also met and chatted to the chap on Lord Byron's maggot a few weeks ago on the Middlewich branch of the Shroppie. Nowt wrong w
  14. I also use an old 56lb weight. I have been told by people with more experience that once deployed, an anchor,especially in fast flowing water, is almost impossible to recover!
  15. I just wonder how anyone is going to police all this nonsense! The same goes for the ban on red diesel!
