Gallions Canal, New Acres Road, Thamesmead, London

http://www.thamesmeadtownanglingclub.co.uk/ Gallions Canal, New Acres Road, is a short stretch of canal situated in Thamesmead, London Borough Of Greenwich. It is a Members Only water controlled by Thamesmead Town Angling Club.
Not to be confused with Thamesmead Canal. This is a different stretch. Over the years, different sections have disappeared, been changed route, filled in made way for roads, houses.
This particular section runs from Gallions Lake through to the end point as seen on map above, being shut off the end of stretch. Plenty of fish in here.
Exclusive to Club Members Only ! Controlled by Thamesmead Town Angling Club. Absolutely worth joining not just for the 4 lakes, but this wonderful short stretch of canal 👍😎🎣
Not only one fishing today. Admiring wildlife. Looking forward to owning digital camera. Phone taken some nice pictures up to now, however room for improvement 👍😎🎣
work in progress

IBHOOKS fishing terminal tackle, hook and accessory boxes REVIEW

AWS Review: IB HOOKS terminal tackle, hook and accessory boxes 10/10 https://ibhooks.com/
Good Afternoon Folk's,
AWS Review: IB HOOKS terminal tackle, hook and accessory boxes 10/10
Firstly would like to point out don't receive any such fishing tackle or baits from any company. Completely Independent, not sponsored, all my Fishing tackle is purchased by working hard, spending own money.
Unlike many reviews you will come across in the press, be it fishing tackle or any product we all know most such reviews are not true, honest or well tested. Often reviews are put together without any or little Field Testing.
Purchased these boxes some months back, and have put them through months of rugged testing. Not afraid to use them without fear of falling apart. Gone through extreme weather conditions, rain, snow and damp conditions. After all fishing tackle needs to be robust and withstand some form of abuse without falling apart after a few sessions.
Over the year's purchased many …

AWS BLOG ENTRY: 26 May 19
Afternoon All,
Just arrived back home after a lovely night out. First off thanks Charlie for taking me and Sammy Boy to the coast.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, certainly be visiting again, despite catching nothing big, or spectacular. Called fishing for a reason, not always about the catching. Was just glad to be out of the big smoke. Both caught loads of these annoying dogfish, and whiting. No bass unfortunately for anyone spoke to on the beach.

Mmm Yesssss the verdict, tasted great 👍😎🎣
Time for a nice bath, cup of tea, a few hours shut eye Zzz Zzz Just getting dark on arrival, looking forward to a good night's fishing 👍😎🎣 AWS BLOG ENTRY : 25 May 19

Been on the look out for a special float to tackle many of the fast, shallow rivers fish on a regular basis. Spotted these and had to contact Purplepeanut007 on Facebook straight away.  Not realising at first these where by Mike Cootes.
