Tinsley, Sheffield, S9 2, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Tinsley Wire Canal Basin is a stretch of canal that runs through Tinsley in South Yorkshire. It is a lovely canal with plenty of species to catch. The canal isn’t too easy to fish but can be rewarding for those anglers looking for a challenge. This stretch of the canal isn’t too busy, but there is foot traffic and boat traffic that can make fishing difficult. Still, many anglers have caught big on the canal over the years, so it is well worth your time if you’re keen to put in the work.
What size do the fish go to?
We aren’t too sure how big the fish are in Tinsley Wire Canal Basin. We know there are some lovely bream in the canal, there are also some feisty carp and barbel. There are also roach, rudd and perch to good sizes. Plus, the occasional big pike is pulled out the canal in the winter. The difficultly is locating the fish, but local anglers have their ways.
What tactics work well?
While fishing to the middle can sometimes work on a hotter summer’s day, it is better to stick the margins here. Either the far bank or baiting a small area right up close. There are hardly any features to fish to on this canal, but if you come across a moored boat, there could be some monsters hiding underneath it. Closed feeders work well here, but bright single hookbaits and even maggots have been known to catch big ones here.
What facilities are on site?
The canal runs through Tinsley, so shops and cafes are just a short walk away. There are also public toilets close by.
Is parking available?
Parking is close to the canal.
