17th May 2011 A fishing i will go

15lb + mirror carp caught on the pole

With much less wind about we set off for Wynchnor. We planned to stop off at Barton Turn to check out the shops at the marina.  We had lunch and continued our journey.  There weren’t any mooring spaces at Wynchnor so we continued on to Alrewas. We did a small stretch on the River Trent and passed a weir which was scary.  In all we went through six locks and met some lovely people on the way.  Some had been on the canals for twenty years and said we would love the life. After tea Norwyn found time to do some fishing and the picture shows the carp he caught following a great struggle.  Tomorrow we plan to walk into Fradley Junction.
