Many people will travel great distances to go to a fishing spot they heard about from friends or saw on a fishing show, and we tend to overlook what’s right in our own backyards. One of my favourite rivers to fish is the Grand River. I love going there and walking the river in the early mornings searching for those monster browns that lurk in her waters! But last year with the summer temps and low waters from the lack of rain the trip from London to Fergus was getting a bit tiresome and not so rewarding. So I decided to focus my efforts on a river that I saw daily but never really gave the time to…….. The Thames River.
