This was not only my first zander but the first I've ever seen. I've fished for forty odd years but not seriously for fifteen plus. The spread of this species in the Midlands canal network was something I wasn't aware of until very recently. With 'the light nights' imminent and regular trips to Leicester in my diary there is certainly chance to do some serious towpath bashing. Now, where's my new OS Landranger sheet 140, "Leicester, Coventry and Rugby"?
