Fisherman by Bridge #5

The Peak Forest Canal runs for 15 miles between Ashton under Lyne and Whaley Bridge. It was built to link the Ashton Canal with the tramways that brought limestone from the Peak District quarries.

At bridge #5 the canal passes under Nursery Road and the M67 motorway. The fisherman is using live maggots as bait and looking for pike and roach.

See him from the opposite direction on Hyde DP Xtra.
